For the Love of KETTO

Happy Saturday! Welcome to the first KETTO Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella. There's a $40 gift certificate to Stamping Bella up for grabs to one lucky person who comments on the right blog along the way (it's a secret whose blog it is, though), so it's worth your while to start at the beginning and leave all those gorgeous Kettos some love!



I've mentioned before that I'm just a wee bit KETTO crazy, so when I saw there was an all Ketto blog hop going on I just had to sign myself up! My latest Ketto order arrived a week or so ago and I've been just dying to have some time to play with them all! For my project I decided on a gift set of notecards and a cute little coordinating box.

The box was printed on the backside of some Nonsense DP (We R Memory Keepers) using the lines-only large version of the Playing Cards Box #2 by Kelleigh Ratzlaff. I simply assembled and then adorned with some wide pomegranate satin ribbon, adding some frills with heart shaped pins. The card size is 3 x 4.25" and designed to fit inside the box. I made some custom envelopes by resizing Kelleigh's Mini Envelopes template. Here are close-ups of the individual cards. In order of appearance, Phoebe Ketto, Rollanda Ketto, Maisy Ketto, Phoebe again (gotta love her!), and Margarita Ketto. Sentiments are all from Thoughtful Florals by Verve.







What's In There?
Stamps: Phoebe, Maisy, Margarita & Rollanda Kettos (Stamping Bella), Thoughtful Florals (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Nonsense DP (We R Memory Keepers), Purely Pomegranate (SU!)
Ink: A Muse Black, Copic markers
Accessories: Classic Scallop Squares, Rectangles, Circles & Ovals (Nestabilities), Word Window Punch, Large oval punch, scallop oval punch, pomegranate satin ribbon (SU!),
Hot Lips Bella Baubles (Stamping Bella), mini scallop scissors (ProvoCraft), heart pins (Making Memories), bling (Kaiser Craft), glitter & diamond glaze mixture
Templates: Playing Card Box #2, Mini Envelopes (Kelleigh Ratzlaff)


Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to the fabulous Lori Craig's blog for some more KETTO goodness! Have a great day!
