Sketch and Color Challenge #20

The countdown has started…the August new release is happening this weekend!    Be sure to stop back here for peeks at all the adorable stamps and dies hitting the store.   Plus, there is a blog hop on Sunday.   August is YNS’ Birthday month and there is a BIG party to celebrate which means BIG prizes!!!Aug92015-hopgraphic


While you are waiting for the new release to hit the store, why don’t you check out our new sketch and color combo challenge???!!!

Our challenges are designed to give you the freedom to choose, each has both a sketch and color combo to pick from. You only need to pick one…unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the 2!

Challenge #20 is open through August 20th at midnight EST.   That gives you 2 weeks to play along for a chance to win a YNS gift certificate.   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.   Simply 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.

Sketch #20:YNSSketch20

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.

Color combination #20:YNScolor-20

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.

The design team has some creations to share, let’s see how they were inspired!

 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 #20 ends on Thursday, August 20, 2015, at midnight EST
