Sketch and Color Challenge #89 Winners

We have winners!  Did you play along with challenge #89?   If so, then one of the winners could be you!

The winner of the main challenge is participant #28, Ionabunny, who receives a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store.

The winner of the social media portion of the challenge is Roberta Stevenson who shared her creation on the YNS FB page.  Roberta receives a $20.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store.

Congratulations!  Please contact Karen via the contact us link at the bottom of the site to claim your prize.


The Top Pick from the challenge is this magical card created by Donna Rudy!

Not only does this card feature one of the ponies from the Magical Ponies stamp set, but it has some built in magic too!  Turning the sketch in to a slider card works so well.

Donna’s card is colored up in soft colors that match the clouds and light blue mat perfectly.  The sprinkling of pink stars ties it all together.

See more of Donna’s creations on her blog Kards By Krash Scrapper!


Challenge #90 is going on right now!  Have you played along yet?

Happy Stamping!

I Spy YNS Saturday – Monsters

This week we spied those Silly Monsters on a card created by Kate Dykstra!   We always enjoy seeing what those monsters are getting in to and this week it is a rock band created with the set Silly Monster Rockstars.

Kate’s card caught our attention with the way she layered one colored image over the simply stamped monsters in the background.

Attention is drawn to the lead guitarist which is colored up to match the card base and mat surrounding all the white.

Kudos Kate and thanks for showcasing how stamps don’t always need to be colored in to be awesome!


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

Happy Stamping!
