Revisit the January Release with Dian

Your Next Stamp Design Team member Dian has a treat for everyone today.

Dian created 4 cards showcasing all the cuteness from the January release.   The focus so far this month has been on the February release, but Dian’s cards will remind you that the January release can be used in so many different ways.

If you loved Dian’s cards then stop by Instagram where she is giving away 2 of her cards; Instagram gallery:  dian_ratna_sari.  Winning would definitely be a treat!

Sketch and Color Challenge #58

Happy Friday!   We hope you are ready for a new challenge, because we have one for you starting today!   There is a new sketch and color combo to choose from, plus inspiration from the design team and guests.  The best part is you have the chance to win a YNS Store gift certificate if you play along!!   Remember, you can choose either the sketch or color combo to take inspiration from, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!

Challenge #58 is open through Thursday, March 2, 2017 at midnight EST.  

One random participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, plus if the winner uses YNS products on their creation they will receive an additional $5.00 on their gift certificate.  We also select our favorite creation featuring YNS products from all participants and announce a “Top Pick”.   The random winner and “Top Pick” will be announced on the YNS blog the Sunday following the challenge close.   Link up a picture of your creation from your blog, gallery, etc. at the bottom of this post and you will be entered to win.

PLUS…if you are using YNS products on your creation why don’t you take the YNS Social Media challenge too?! You don’t need to create a different project, simply add your Challenge #58 entries to IG, SCS or FB.  Check out all the details in the rules at the bottom.

The sketch

If you use the sketch feel free to swap out shapes or rotate; so long as we can see the basic sketch was your inspiration.
