Geared Up Spotlight Hop Day 2

Hi friends!  It's Day 2 of release week for Verve and the Divas are back sharing their first looks at another new set in today's blog hop. This is the start of the hop, so grab a treat and settle in for a fresh batch of Verve!


As usual, there's a prize too!  Just leave a little comment as you hop through each blog in today's list and you'll be entered in a drawing to win today's featured products...  Geared Up and the Award Banner Trim Die.

My card today has a few little peeks at other things in this release as well.  The birthday wishes sentiment is the "freebie" stamp that will be tucked in with orders this release.  The ribbon is part of the Autumn Elements Ribbon Collection, and I've also embellished with a few of the gear shaped sequins in the Metal Mix Collection.  The main image from Geared Up is this fun little retro robot.  Here I've paper pieced his parts with designer paper for a rusty look to match the seam binding.  There are seven different gear images in the set, and I used them all to stamp a tone on tone background, then used just three of the outlined gear images and punched them out as circles to accent the sentiment.  The top little bracket is made using the Flag It Die Set and I finished off with some silver liquid pearls.  Alrighty, everything you see today will be available for purchase in the Verve store on Friday, September 27.  Next up on the hop is...Teresa!
