RCC37-Non-Traditional Colors with Suzanne

WOW, you continue to wow us with your creations and last week was no exception! We’ll announce the lucky random winner and Top Spools on Friday. To keep you busy till then, how about another challenge?!



This week, we’re changing things up in a Non-traditional kinda way! Suzanne is challenging us to use NON-Traditional colors for our creations. Making a valentine card? How about NOT using red or pink, or not too much of it anyways? Creating a gorgeous winter scene? Try it with creams instead of whites. Whatever you’re making….try a non-traditional palate as a challenge!

So, what else can we do in a Non-traditional manner this week? How about a JOINT challenge (One challenge, two sponsors on two challenge sites, twice as many chances to win) with our amazing sponsor this week, the fabulous Paper and Such!



Paper and Such is an online store that just opened in May of 2011. Shortly after opening, we decided to begin our own stamp line, and it's been nothing short of exciting. Our stamps are clear photopolymer, and are made right here in the USA! Our HOT SHOT line is a line of chicken stamps - if you haven't seen them, be sure to check them out. We are constantly adding to our stamp line, and love to hear what our customers want.



Paper and Such will be giving one lucky randomly drawn participant a $15 gift certificate to their store! And…..RibbonCarousel.com is sponsoring their challenge this week, so there is twice as much inspiration and twice as many chances to win! And yes, you can enter your creation here AND at the Paper and Such challenge.

Here are some creations from our SUPER TALENTED crew:


Kim O'Connell


Anita Autore



Debbie Carriere


Stephanie Muzzulin




Angela Thomas







Andrea Ewen





and our fabulous guest designer this month, Glenda Wyatt


***Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your NEW creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Any submissions made prior to the challenge date will be deleted. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC37) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
  • Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
  • Come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool!
