Sketch and Color Challenge #17

Happy Friday!

Today our new challenge starts and before I get to that I want to mention that today is also the last day to take advantage of the 20% off sale in the Your Next Store.



So are you ready for the new challenge?

You have until July 9th at midnight EST to play along.  As we head in to the weekend hopefully you have some crafting time set aside.  Each challenge has a sketch and a color combo to choose from, which will be your inspiration?

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.

Our last challenge was all about circles and this challenge is all about rectangles.YNSSketch17
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.

How about some purple and greens for a color combo?YNScolor-17

If you choose the color combo, be sure to use at least 3 colors and feel free to add in neutrals.  The names of the colors are based on Bazzill cardstock, but substitute whatever you have that is close to it.

Here is the design team’s take on the challenges…


YNS Supplies: Waddles – Happy Brrr-thday! | Waddles – Happy Brrr-thday! Coordinating Dies | Stitched Rectangle dies | Olive gumdrops


Be sure to join in the fun and share your own creation inspired by either the sketch or the colors OR both!  Link up your project through Inlinkz below.

  • YNS’ bi-weekly challenge #17 ends on Thursday, July 9, 2015, at midnight EST
  • One random participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp store.  If YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives an additional $5 gift certificate for a total of $20.  The winner will be announced on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.
  • All stamps are welcome, although we love to see YNS stamps and dies on your projects.
  • The YNS Top Pick will receive the “YNS Top Pick” badge and their project will be featured on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.  To be considered for the Top Pick, YNS stamps/dies must be the focal point of your project.
