A Special Look Back at ODBD's September Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs September Release.  Here are the projects I created using Let Freedom Ring, USA Flag Die, Justice For All, Stars and Stripes Paper Pad and Defining Force stamp. For more inspiration using the September Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.  

I opted to give this project a more primitive look by using sand colored card stock instead of the traditional white for my flag (USA Flag Die).  I stamped the sentiment (Let Freedom Ring) on the same CS and added a navy blue die cut mat.  To finish off the double layered star, I wove some baker's twine through a natural wood button and added it to the center. 
It's been heartbreaking to watch all of the storm damage of late in Texas and now Florida.  I have traveled to the Lone Star state several times and absolutely love it.  The people are so nice!  (My husband says this is because most of the settlers originally came from Tennessee or Kentucky.)            :-)

I started with a red card stock base and after adding a slightly smaller white mat die cut a layer from the new  Stars and Stripes Paper Pad.  I love how it already has the flag design!  I used an older die (Ornate Hearts) to create my Lone Star Flag.  I simply cut white, red and blue layers to create it.  A white star from another favorite Sparkling Stars tops it off. The sentiment can be found in the Justice For All stamp set.  

 And my final card today features the new Stars and Stripes Paper Pad along with a sentiment from the Defining Force.  I chose to emboss this sentiment on the blue DP with a white embossing powder.  I chose a red card stock base to highlight this fun patriotic ray paper.  I love how it draws your eye into the sentiment panel!  

Here are some of the new items you see today...
