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!

Challenge Rules

Every month we will post a sketch challenge along with a photo inspiration challenge

We want our challenge to be FUN so please feel free to rotate the sketch, re size the elements, and add to the sketch. 

Use our inspiration photo as just that 'inspiration'. You are welcome to use any element from the photo as your inspiration...color, shape, design etc... 

You can use just the sketch or just the photo or combine the sketch and photo...let your imagination run wild!

You DO NOT have to use YNS Stamps and/or Dies on your project but if you choose to use a YNS image (and we hope you do) you will be eligible for our TOP PICK selection! Top pick winners get this adorable blinkie for their blog

We don't mind if you combine your entry with other challenges, but please do not backlink to old creations or re-post a creation you made prior to the posting of the current challenge - this makes it fair to everyone who enters.

To be eligible to be entered into our prize draw, please add a link to this challenge blog in your blog post.

You have the entire month to submit your entry. All entries must be submitted by midnight (EST) on the Thursday immediately prior to the posting of the next challenge. 

You can play along as many times as you like all month long!

Only entries submitted via inlinkz or email will be counted.

inlinkz Entries

Please enter a direct link to the post that displays your challenge entry. Please do not post a general link to your blog, as this makes it difficult for the design team to view your entry. 

Online Gallery Keywords

If you are linking up your project to an online gallery like Splitcoaststampers please use the keyword YNSFFC followed by the appropriate challenge code. Example - our first challenge is in June so the keyword is YNSFFC01, July is YNSFFC02, Aug is YNSFFC03 etc...
Email Entries

If you do not have a blog, we would still love you to participate in our challenges - just EMAIL US a picture of your creation!
