Sketch and Color Challenge #59 Winners

Thank you to everyone who played along with challenge #59.  There were so many great takes on the sketch and color combo.

The winner of the main challenge is participant #13, Sanderelli.  Sanderelli is the winner of a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store!

The winner of the social media portion of the challenge is Ashlee McGregor who shared her entry on the YNS Facebook page.  Ashlee wins a $20.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store!

Congratulations to both winners, please contact Karen via the link at the bottom of the website to claim your prizes!


The Top Pick for the challenge is a familiar name…Ashlee McGregor!

Ashlee’s card is a pop of color.

Turning the bottom panel in to a perch for the toucan works so well.   Plus, her water coloring is spot on!


Challenge #60 is going on right now.  Join in for another chance to win!

I Spy YNS Saturday – Race On

This week color caught our eye on a shaker race themed card by Jennifer Dixon!

Jennifer combines a great layout and racing elements, then revs up the fun with sequins.  The Checkered Edge acts as a base for the driver and car from the Rev Up the Fun stamp set.

See more of Jennifer’s creations on her blog Jennifer D.

I Spy YNS Saturday – Honey Bear

This week we spied honey, lots and lots of honey on a card created by Becky Lillibridge!

Becky described her creation as a “sweet little bear card” and it truly is!

The honey comb background creates a warm setting for Honey Bear.  The sentiment pops against all that yellow.

You can find more of Becky’s creations on Instagram where she goes by beckynoelle.


We are always on the lookout for awesome customer creations.   Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp.
