November 2022 Challenge

November 2022 Challenge

Welcome to the November challenge at Pinkfresh Studio! You all created such amazing projects for last month's challenge, and we can't wait to see what you create this month! This challenge is for ALL papercrafters - including scrapbooking, cardmaking, minis, journals, notebooks & more!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the October challenge on last week's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

November is all about Texture!

There are so many ways to add texture to your projects. You can heat emboss or hot foil for subtle texture, crinkle or tear paper edges, dry emboss with your dies or hot foil plates, add die cut layers, use stencils and pastes, or twine or ribbon. The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see how you incorporate texture into your designs!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Persimmon, Emerald City, Misty Coast, Storm, & Sweet Mustard.

As always you can use just the theme, just the colors, or use both for your projects! Here is some inspiration for you from our amazing team:

This was a fun challenge! I did a little bit of everything – added enamel dots, roughed up paper edges, layered florals, and heat embossed flowers.

Had so much fun creating cards with texture. I hope you like them the 3rd one with them negatives of the cover plate was definitely a labour of love, adding foam tape slivers to each of the negative pieces. It went down a bit crooked but the sentiment and foliage camouflaged the flaws.

I love these challenges – they are so much fun and help me get inspired to use all of your beautiful products! I submitted a scrapbook layout using the Indigo Vines and Poinsettia Washis! They are older but still love them!

Thanks for the fun challenge! I used product that you generously supplied during the Create & Connect scrapbooking event. I used a cut file from Paige Evans to create my Adventure Awaits title.

AWESOME CHALLENGE!! I went with layers of texture and created an easel card. The colors lean more toward the red/pinks. Such fun – thanks for a great challenge!!
