Sketch and Color Challenge #80

Are you ready for a new challenge?    Challenge #80 starts today and runs through January 18, 2018!

There is a sketch and color combo to choose from, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!  Play along for the change to win a YNS Store gift certificate.

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.

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 #79 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.

Ceal Pritchett

Blog:  Simply Beautiful

Hi There! My Name is Ceal Pritchett and I am so excited to be guest designing for Your Next Stamp!
I currently live in the mountains of Western North Carolina with my amazing and supportive husband, Robin and our little fur baby Shih Tzu, Willis.
I have been crafting of some sort since I was a child and like many I started out scrapbooking and then attended a Stampin Up party and became a cardmaker practically overnight. I love the papercrafting community, I have met many wonderful friends online and in real life, it’s so full of people like myself who love sharing handmade kindness.

Tina Henkens

Hi! My name is Tina and I’m a cardmaker from Belgium. A few years ago I watched a cardmaking video on Youtube and I was hooked immediately.  Luckely I have a very supportive husband and daughter. During the week my job takes up must of my time so I usely craft during the weekend. I’m a big fan of whimsical stamps, especially cute critters. My other hobbies are reading, taking our dog Mira for a long walk and traveling.
Thank you so much Karen for inviting me this month!
