Revisiting the October Release From Our Daily Bread Designs

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' October Release.  I have two projects to share today using Be a Sunflower stamp set, coordinating Sunflower DieFollow the Son Paper PadFall Favorites Paper PadMerry Christmas Caps Die and Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pad.   For more inspiration using the October Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.

 I started with a couple of rich layered solids (brown and burgundy) from the Fall Favorites Paper Pad and added a designer paper layer from the Follow the Son Paper Pad.  I used the largest die in the Pierced Rectangles Die set to create the patterned base.  After trimming down the polka dot band (also from the Fall Favorites Paper Pad), I added a bit of hemp twine and tied a simple bow.  The sentiment and image both came in the new Be a Sunflower stamp set.  I used the coordinating Sunflower Die to cut out the image and added it with a bit of dimensional foam.  I used a few old favorites, the Ovals Die and Pierced Ovals Die to finish off the sentiment panel. 
I chose to use dies only on the second card.  And since I need more Christmas cards in my stash...  it seemed like the best route to go.  
I used designer paper from two collections, the new Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pad and the original Christmas Collection 2015 Paper Pad.  (Solids are from the Coordinating PP and the pattern is in the original Christmas Collection.  I nested a Double Stitched Rectangles Die and Lavish Layers Die to create my frame.  I offset a couple of die cuts using the NEW Merry Christmas Caps Die.  So here are a few of the new items you see...
