Hello and Welcome to YNS Challenges

You have found Your Next Stamp Challenges. The first Friday of each month we'll post a new challenge for you to follow, along with and the chance to win YOUR NEXT STAMP prizes and GUEST DESIGNER spots here at YNS!

Our SKETCH and PHOTO INSPIRATION challenge runs for an entire month so for added inspiration we will be adding new cards & creations from the YNS Design Team EVERY Friday so be sure to stop by every week and join in the FUN!

We would love to see you create a card using a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp, but we also welcome projects made with other stamps. If you do use a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp or die, your project just might be selected as our TOP PICK!
