  1. Wohoo fab cards with the new stamp sets Janine, love them both!!

  2. Two great guy cards, Janine. I especially like the first one with the inked embossing folder. Good job!

  3. Fabulous cards, Janine. I like the white embossed gear background on the first one and the bright color you used on the second one.

  4. Fantastic designs love how you inked the embossing folder on the first one!

  5. Both of these are fun cards. Love the embossing.

  6. Janine,
    Two very pretty cards - never thought I'd say that about gears! I really like the first one with the EF!

  7. Who would have thought you could create an elegant card with gears?
    Your first card is stunning and the second created entirely different for a variety of ideas to use the new images.

  8. Both cards are fabulous; love the inked embossing folder background.

  9. Janine, these are both terrific cards! I love the popped up gears on the first card and really love how you coordinated the die cut gears with the new Gear Up stamp set on you second card.

  10. Absolutely fabulous! Thank you for the inspiration Karen P

  11. Janine I love the cards you have created with this set. The effect you achieved with the two embossing powder shades is amazing.

  12. Great gears!!! Love the embossing.
