More October Papertrey Projects

Hey friendies, I have another post today featuring a few more October Papertrey projects.  All of the new products from this month can be found here.  This first card uses Becky's Merry Little Christmas stamp set, dies and Christmas Prints.  Carnival Ticket is from my Etsy shop.
This next card features a background created with Pine's new Holly Jolly and Fillable Frames #9 stamp set.  Candied Apple Carnival Tickets are here.
Love the look of stitching right over the Carnival Tickets.  Buttons and ribbon are the new Pinefeather color.
This next features one of my favorite flowers from Nichole's Year of Flowers sets..the marigolds.  If you love to use your Copics on the flower sets, try stamping the floral images onto patterned paper and then adding definition to the image with your Copics, then cutting out the images.  So fool proof and quick.  Here, I've just basically outline each flower petal with a darker yellow color and then did some blending with lighter yellows and my colorless blender.  Stamping just the line images as background paper really adds an interesting look too.  
This card makes for a wonderful birthday card for my aunt this month.  I used a signature set from Dawn along with some snippets of patterned paper on the inside of the card.  So fun to open the card and find even more goodness on the inside.
Thanks again to all of  you for your kind words to me the past few days.  You guys just rock!!  I'm off to get some things around the house and shop today.  My mom goes in for shoulder surgery later this week and I want to be all caught up so I can play nurse.

i really like how you used the copics on patterned paper. for me, that would take a bit of the fear of copics away. thanks for sharing.

Beautiful cards as always. I wanted to tell you that I was very inspired by your gift wrapping station. My plan is to do the same. I have a red tin tray that I got at Target a couple of years ago. I plan to set it out next month with tape, homemade tags, ribbon, scissors, ect.
You have the best ideas!
