Gold, Kraft, and Chevrons: What's Not to Love?

I am just loving the chevron strip from the Some Odd Girl clear set "Make A Statement!" It adds the perfect accent to so many cards. This time I stamped it in white on kraft cardstock (another favorite combo) using Hero Arts Unicorn colored Pigment Ink. I am so glad I picked some up, because it really is the perfect white ink! It shows up nice and opaque on dark-colored cardstock and still keeps a pretty crisp image. 

I started out with this Happy Borthday card. I embossed the sentiment (from Stampin' Up's "Perfectly Penned") in gold. But you know what? I ended up loving the layout and the color combo so much that I decided to try some other focal stamps...

Meet Foxy. I think he looks grand in gold, too. His hat comes from the SOG Owl-days set, which leads me to my next card...

Luckily this little guy fit on the tag, too. I made a couple of each so that I have more to give out in future. :) The owl one got entered into a twine challenge on Some Odd Girl's Facebook group a few weeks ago, but Foxy and Happy Birthday were saved for this month's Pot O' Gold Challenge ( ). Fingers crossed! (Uh... metaphorically. I don't actually believe in luck, but that's a whole 'nother topic).

Stick around, I've got a few more cards to post in the coming days... gotta make up for a long un-bloggerly absence. :) Until then...
