Welcome to the September 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 August challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

September is all about LEAVES & GREENERY!

There are so many ways to use this challenge theme! We have so many options for leaves & greenery, including patterned papers, diecut ephemera, stamps, stencils, dies....this list could go on & on!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Stargazer, Apricot, Ballet Slipper, Lemon Whip, & Meadow.

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:

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

The theme this month was a great reason for me to ink up the leafy decor stamp – I love it.

27 Sep 2021 Greta H

Well—it took me all month to decide what I wanted to use for my card! But I’m so glad I finally remembered that I have the wonderful Lush Vines stamp which I colored thinking of the transition from Summer to Fall. My first time using Small Butterflies, but won’t be my last! Thanks for continuing these challenges & your generous prizes!

This might be my favorite card ever. I used Spun Sugar Oxide on the background. So much fun using the hot foil butterfly plate and rose gold on vellum to create lots of soft interest. I just acquired the leafy branch die and knew I wanted to use it on this caed. I have both a shiny rose gold paper and one that’s more subtle and has a brushed finish. It was perfect for the look I wanted. Lots of love to you Pinkfresh!

This greenery challenge is so easy with all the floral products you carry. I love using the diamond die as a background for my daisy wreath. It reminds me of flowers on a trellis at my grandma’s house. 💖

23 Sep 2021 Vicki Davis

The Joyful Bouquet washi tape was the inspiration for my card. I love how it takes center stage for almost the entire background.

23 Sep 2021 Maree Crozier

What a fun challenge, perfect colors for The Best Day!

22 Sep 2021 Mac Mable

I had fun using the Hanging Florals stamp and die set as my starting point for my Autumnal wreath. Always tons of inspiration here…..Thank you x.

22 Sep 2021 Vicki Davis

I love the new hot foil plate for the Daisy Wreath suite. My greenery colors are not the typical color but I love the way they coordinate with the plaid background. 💖

I love 💜 this challenge and the choice of colours! I recently just discovered this brand and I can’t get enough! As a side note, do you know when you will be getting more of your inks in stock – it’s just that I want them all ! 😃

21 Sep 2021 Bartz Rosali

It’s never too early for Christmas cards right? I am happy my mojo is back so I started Christmas cardmaking as long as it’s here. 😅


Beautiful projects from the DT!

18 Sep 2021 Nikki Foraker

Excited to make a card for my first Pinkfresh challenge! 🥰 Yay! 😁

18 Sep 2021 mimizitrone

Love the colors of this challenge so much! And I used so many different papers from my Pinkfresh Studio Collection, that was really fun :) The DT projects are so beautiful!

17 Sep 2021 Sue Symens

I used the layering stencil with full strength ink, light blended ink and an marker outline to create depth with one color. Love your layering stencils!

17 Sep 2021 Irina Honcharyk

Great challenge!

15 Sep 2021 Debbie D

Used the Curvy Floral vine stamp and die for my greenery. A little ink blending on the stamp, gold embossing for the stems and a little bling to finish it off.

15 Sep 2021 Claire Hawkins

I may have a slight obsession with fussy cutting those gorgeous leaves from The Best Day collection so this challenge gave me the perfect chance to cut some more :)

14 Sep 2021 Lin Brandyberry

Great challenge! I hope it’s okay to use one of your retired products – haven’t used this leafy wreath nearly enough!

13 Sep 2021 Dawn Haddad

Love this challenge! I was glad I had Pinkfresh Studio Leaves and Greenery to work with! Lush Greenery worked great for this challenge.

09 Sep 2021 Heidi Mattessich

This is another great monthly challenge! The inspiration works have me excited to get started. I really love the combination of navy with these colors.

This is my first time joining the fun! What a great challenge. It gave me the opportunity to use my Folk Garden set.
