I was so happy to see the two new gear sets.  I had just bought some gear dies and I couldn't wait to use them with these darling new sets...

Here are both cards...

 The first card I used the background stamp and embossed it with TH distress EP.  
I used the two new die sets on this card.

The second card I was digging around my papers and found some really old gear paper that I thought would make a great theme card.  I used some brads the colors in the paper.

Be sure to stop by my Team Members and give them some love...

Here's the Design Team:
