Paper Hugs

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? The destination location? Something of the recipient? Or could it be from the challenge itself? Remember, sending your card to the listed guest of honor is 100% voluntary - it's not a requirement but will be very well appreciated. Just have fun!

This week's challenge hostess is: susieaustralia/Susie

As Janet loves making cards, I thought we could send paper hugs by choosing a "paper" technique and using any subject you like. I found these fun techniques in the SCS Tutorials.

Paper Pleating

Paper Piecing

One Layer Paper Tole

Extra cookies if you add a "hat" to your chosen paper tutorial. Don't forget that you can take inspiration from the Teapot or cookies.

CARD TYPE/THEME: Comfort, Thinking of You, Hello (please avoid get well or hopeful sentiments).

papercrafter40 (Andrea) reached out to request a teaparty for her friend, Janet. Janet is caring for her husband, Bruce, who has terminal lung cancer. Janet loves making cards herself and often makes/sends cards to hospitalized children through Send a Smile 4 Kids. Janet and Bruce can surely use some comforting thoughts.

not sure what I'll make, but I will make one today and send it in the morning.

Susie, I have a question...what's with the extra cookies for using a hat? Is is because the woman on the teapot has one on or was it just a random thing? Just wondering...;)

Susie this is such a sweet challenge.

You'll have to imagine what kind of hat you might wear if you were climbing mountains:

No hat - but I did use the one layer paper tole. I didn't think it would work with any images I have with hats .

Rubbing the foam off the stamp so that I could use it unmounted reminded me of Susie's description of rubbing pencils shavings and feeling as if she had no fingerprints left afterwards (https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...dermatoglyphia). It also took up far too much of my afternoon, but at least it will be all set to go next time I want to use the stamp.

Good question Polly. I was trying to think of something that women and men use or do, just in case a Teapotter wanted to make their card for both Janet and Bruce. Hats was the first thing I thought of, which is funny because the original card I made for them didn't have a hat LOL. The gallery looks great, I'm off to comment now

Had fun with this challenge, Susie, love paper piecing and don't know why I don't do it more often!!

Late to the party again! No extra cookies for me, but I did use paper piecing on my card. Thanks, Susie, for a fun challenge!

I am playing my "Challenge Catch-up" cardmaking. This is a card for my brother who recently lost his wife.

Theme: comfort, thinking of you, hello, etc. Use a paper technique on your card. I have used paper piercing on my card. As I am late to the party, my thinking of you card will go to my brother, who recently lost his wife.

Here is my card: Being Strong!
