Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration-RicRac!

Good Morning! This Saturday we are featuring RicRac for Stamp Simply's Ribbon Inspiration. I decided to embellish this jar candle I picked up after Christmas! One of those after Christmas Sale items that was 75% off! The scent of this Colonial Candle is Pure Cashmere,yum! Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue Chipboard Pop Stickers and Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Paper embellish the outer glass perfectly! And talk about simple!


JustRite's Spring Words is where I found my sentiment for today's project.  As you can tell by the sentiment I used, I will be gifting this candle for Mother's Day! Just look at all the wonderful stamps in this set! It's now available at The Stamp Simply Store HERE. Today's sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and punched using a SU oval punch.
Here are all the gorgeous colors of 1/2" ric arc, which includes the pink color I used today! All The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store ric rac selections are HERE. I have been working with the 1/2" ric rac quite a bit lately. Remember the hair clips HERE, and the Heart Ric Rac Onsies HERE? Such great quality and fun to use! Thank you for visiting today! Tomorrow, finally that canvas will be posted!  


  • This week's blog candy winner will receive a fabulous assortment of ric arc, 1/2 yard of ALL ric arc carried, that is 1/2 yard of each color of each type the store carries. Sharon has all three types shown on her blog HERE.
  • Did you know The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has a FaceBook page! Be sure to go LIKE our page to get regular updates of store happenings.
  • Remember this is mystery Blog Candy,the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs.
