Post MMTPT557 ~ March 26, 2019 ~ What A Surprise!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE MMTPT557

What a Surprise!

Anyone is welcome to play in the weekly Teapot Challenge - the more, the merrier! You automatically become a “TEApotter” the first time you play. Where will you find ]inspiration? Will it be from the teapot or from the challenge theme itself? Remember, your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not a requirement. Just have fun!

It's the last Tuesday of the month, so it's Tickle a Teapotter time again and this month we are delighted to have



Dr Sonja, Sonja as our hostess.

Here's the challenge she has for us.

I did consult Wikipedia and found that many European countries and Western hemisphere countries celebrate some form of April Fool's Day. Since this day is one for tricks and jokes, I would like to challenge the crafty sistahs of SCS to create a fun filled card that will bring a surprise and smile to the faces of our Teapotters from around the world. Use fun and fanciful embellishments like feathers, confetti, things that sparkle, spin and shine. Make a pun or a joke. Conceal the punch line on the inside of the card.

CHALLENGE: Make a card with a fun or surprise element

EPEC (extra points for extra cookies):I have memories of playing the silly Jack-in-the-box toy with my sister who is 5 years younger. I would start the cranking fast and then slow down to an achingly tantalizing note-by-note to drag out the suspense for the clown to POP out of the metal box. For BONUS cookies: make a card where something POPS out when the recipient opens the card or pulls a tab!

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other!


-Check out THIS NEW THREAD in the TEApot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions. Make sure to sign up by bedtime on Saturday 30th of March, as I will do the draw the next morning.


Here is Sonja's card: Surprise for Ewe!

Here is a quick link to the MMTPT557 gallery

Be sure to use KEYWORD MMTPT557 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

o you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or all around warm fuzzies? Consider nominating them as a guest of honor (a.k.a. destination station) for an upcoming tea party. Post your request HERE or send a PM to jacqueline.

Surprisingly, ha, because I love pop-ups, I struggled with this. I think because I really wanted to make a twisted pop-up card, so I'm glad to see that Jen did. But I couldn't think what theme to use. When I decided to be inspired by the pot, it all came together. I've also been wanting for ages to make a string spinner card - so I was thrilled to see Sonja's cute one. Maybe that will inspire me to do and not just think about...

This is my rather classic front: MMTPT557 Dance to the Music of Time

and my surprise inside is - not so classical : MMTPT557 Surprise!!

I decided to go with funny on the inside of the card. These AI stamps always bring a fun time.

Here's my card complete with a joke inside, which I'm not posting because it's a "surprise":

Here is my card, front and part of the inside. Doesn't look too hard but there was much aligning with the stamping platform, trial and error, some error. I'll finish the third part soon.

I'm late for the tea party. Fun challenge, Sonja. Here is the front of my card. The inside will hopefully be a surprise, still working on that.

Great ideas for the party Sonya....had to play along with a surprise. I tried a pop-up card on the inside. HERE...in my flowers for the special tea-party friend. Took me a while as have a new puppy and can only do bits at a time...I had forgotten how much emergy they have....lol.

It certainly was fun to see all the creations for the surprise inside challenge. Well done, paper players, artists, and engineers!

I am playing Challenge cardmaking, and hopefully, doing some catching up, as well.

I'm late to the party, so my card is a belated "welcome to the world" card for my third granddaughter for her Grandma Keepsakes box.

The challenge is to make a card with a surprise element. This definitely fits the criteria...one surprise is that most people can not figure out how to open it, and when they do, lots of surprise things pop up and out of the box!

Here is my card in two versions, one showing the front view and the second showing three views: Front view - Welcome to the World, Evie!! and three views - Welcome to the World, Evie!!
