Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Ric Rac!

I'm back with a design for this week's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style...this week...Ric Rac!  Ric Rac is so fun to play with...it lays so flat and makes for a great border and accent.

Also, did you know that The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is on Facebook? "Like It" and you will receive updates of all that is happening!

Back to today's hop:

I've really been into banners and little doodads for decorating these past months...it helps make our place feel a little more like home!

This hanging tag has an Easter theme, and I will display it on my china hutch.

First up, pretty papers by Webster's Pages: "Let's Celebrate, All About Me and Western Romance" Collection Triple Pack.

Can you see the May Art's pink velvet Zig Zag peeking out from the edges?







I stamped the cross image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, perfect for use with Copic Sketch markers. After coloring with Copics, I die cut it with a Spellbinders Classic oval die (check with Sharon for availability). The image panel is then layered up with a bit larger oval, and the new JustRite Custom Nested Oval Medallion. I really love the custom dies that JustRite matches with it's sets...they really give a crisp, clean border and edge to image panels!

NOTE: ALL Spellbinder dies are marked down at the store NOW!

A spattering of yellow, along with a May Art's Ivory Silk Ribbon bow tied with a Bow Easy, finishes this design.




All of today's supplies (minus the Copics) are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.




Here's one type of the Ric Rac that Sharon sells...she has generously made up a sweet Mystery Blog candy pack of 1/2 yard of each of all three ric rac styles that she sells!



This is a Mystery Blog Candy hop, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please.
