I Spy YNS Saturday – Rock Stars

Oh those silly YNS monsters…they pop up everywhere.  We feature them quite often on the blog, but it is hard not to, especially when we spy a card as fun as this one by Kimiko Tran!

The colors against the black caught our eye on Kimiko’s card.   Look closer at her card and  there is so much to find with the star eyes of the lead singer and that great background.   Find more of Kimiko’s work on Instagram where she goes by krafykimiko.


We are always on the lookout for YOUR creations featuring Your Next Stamp products.   Tag your photos with #yournextstamp.

Sketch and Color Challenge #67

Do your weekend plans include crafting?   Why don’t you join in Challenge #67?!

Did you know that YNS Challenges come with 2 chances to win?   Link up your creation for the main challenge and then be sure to share it on Instagram, Splitcoaststampers and/or YNS’ Facebook page for a chance to win our social media challenge.  Scroll on down for all the details.

Remember, you can choose either the sketch or color combo, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!  Play along and you may just win a YNS Store gift certificate.

Challenge #67 is open through Thursday, July 6, 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 #67 entries to IG, SCS or FB.  Check out all the details in the rules at the bottom.

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.
