All Geared up

Its Wednesday again and its a new release
from Heartfelt Creations !!!

Shift your creativity into high gear with the All Geared Up collection from Heartfelt Creations! 
This imaginative mix of gears, cogs, and mechanical flowers uses deep shades of rust, brown, teal, red and cream to create a fabulous industrial vibe. Clever vanity license plates, chains, wire, rugged stripes and distressed graphics mesh perfectly with Steampunk or masculine projects, and will keep your wheels turning with ideas for "girly grunge" creations, too. The versatile All Geared Up dies feature fanciful sprockets, gears, cogs, chains and license plates that can be shaped into innovative 3-D embellishments or die cut from white cardstock to create beautiful doily accents. Six hand drawn stamp sets continue the mechanical theme with a large Cogs and Gears background stamp, themed accent stamps, mechanical bouquets and playful sentiments that are "geared" to carry your project across the finish line with a smile. 

The All Geared Up Collection has been designed to inspire the bold in let's gear up!
