Twofer Card Challenge #39 - Sunshine

Welcome to the June Twofer Card Challenge. As you may know, we want to see two different designs for two different occasions using the same stamps, stencils and/or dies.  

This month's prompt is Sunshine. June is the perfect month for finding inspiration for sunshine everywhere.  :-)


Speaking of inspiration, I found it while admiring the poppy field sunbathing, and watching neighbors kitty playing in the yard.  I've created a hug and a birthday card using sun ray stencil on both cards. All craft supplies are from the Najlepši par.

I'm entering both cards to the June Gallery of Najlepši par (plastična šablona topli žarki, pravokotniki s šivi, na travniku, šivanje, igrive muce, mislim nate, vesela pošta, maki, z najlepšimi željami)


I prefer to send paper hugs by snail mail. Although the world is on the way to normality step by step, a paper hug is still safer. :-) 


I die cut the rectangle with stitches out of white watercolor paper. Then split it at the bottom edge with the die cut grass and shaded grass with green distress ink. On the bigger part of white paper I shaded sun rays thru the stencil with yellow distress ink. Next step was to stamp, color and die cut little kitty and die cut and shaded all other motives and sentiment. It remains only to glue everything together. :-)

I'm entering this card to:

- Make My Monday Challenge Blog: Challenge #150 - Outdoor Fun

- Time Out Challenges: Challenge #169 - Inspired By Words (It's spring again)

- Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog: Simon Says: Create A Scene



June is the time in the year when poppies are blooming. :-)

Poppies and the beautiful sentiment (with the best wishes) are new residents in my craft room. And both are feeling well. Including myself using them on the cards. :-) For this card I die cut the rectangle in the stamp form out of white paper and shaded sun rays with yellow distress ink with the stencil. Then I die cut all the parts of the poppies out of white paper and shaded each piece in appropriate color. Glued them together and placed them on the background. Sentiment is die cut out of white paper two times for more dimension. At the end I mounted everything on the red base.

Love the poppies! I was just thinking how beautiful they are in the fields at the moment and then I scrolled down and saw your photos. Thanks for playing at AAA Birthday, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

moi pravi ...

Oh, koliko različnih barv so maki, to sem šele sedaj ugotovila. Krasni sta obe, tako topli s temi sončnimi žarki.

Klara pravi ...

Uau, a tudi takšnih barv so maki!! Te bom (ali pa tvojega dragega:)) prosila, če mi bosta po koncu cvetenja nabrala malo semenčkov :). Voščilnici sta pa krasni, sonček prav paše:)

Happy Dance pravi ...

That sun rays stencil is wonderful, Sonja! I've seen different ones, of course, but this one really appeals to my eyes! You've used is absolutely perfectly on both of your cards. Your kitty reminds me of one of my long-ago cats, Cinnamon. He was sweet and a little chubby just like this one! Darling card! And your poppies...Wow! Those poppy dies are stunning. That's a really, really beautiful card! You are so blessed to live near a field of poppies. Your husband did a wonderful job with the photos. They are beautiful and serene. Take care. Bev

Bonnie pravi ...

I love how the rays grow out of the sweet, happy sun on the first card, Sonja! The little kitten looks like he's enjoying the beautifully shaded grass and warm rays! The stenciled sun rays make a beautiful background for your gorgeous poppies! Awesome pictures of the poppy field. What a treat to see that!

Brenda in IN pravi ...

I love your sunshine rays on both cards. The kitty looks so happy to be basking in the warm sun and the poppies are so pretty. Your hubby captured some beautiful photos of the poppy fields. What a stunning place to visit.

Cvetoči travnik pravi ...

Ena sama toplota sije iz obeh voščilnic. Čudoviti sta v svoji barvitosti in vidi se jima, da jih je naredila ena srčna oseba. Objem in pozdravček Andreja 😘😘

Moje drobtinice23 pravi ...

Obsijala si nas z eno samo ogromno sončno in srčno energijo <3
Krasni voščilnici si naredila, ki nosita tvojo srčnost v sebi.
Tudi sam ati pošiljam en sončen in srčen objem.

Claire pravi ...

Two more wonderful cards Sonja full of inspiration for the challenge. I love the sweet kitty looking all adorable in the grass soaking up the rays from the happy sun. The poppies just sing and its a beautiful strong red... and what a wonderful view to have near you of all those poppies happily swaying in the breeze, just delightful x

Pip Lewer pravi ...

Poppies are so lovely and your card has captured them perfectly. So glad you joined us this month at AAA Birthday.

Darnell pravi ...

Well done, Silvo! I LOVE poppies and am amazed by the colors you guys have over there! In the wild, they are only yellow and orange here. Awesome photos ... and awesome Twofer designs, Sonja! The warmth from that great sun ray just exudes from the cards, bathing both the sweet little kitty in her field of poppies, and those gorgeous red poppies just bursting off the front! Enjoy the sunshine and, BTW, I agree with you about paper hugs! Hugs, Darnell

Marcia Hill pravi ...

Don't you just LOVE using sunshine stencils??!! I think they make the greatest backgrounds, and they look FABULOUS on both of your cards Sonja!! That little kitty basking in the sunshine is just ADORABLE, and your die cut Poppies are wonderful! And thanks so much for including the photos of the poppy fields...I don't think I've ever see poppy colors like those and they're absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! And I totally agree with you about paper hugs too my friend! Take care! :0)

Čudovito, prav vse Sonja!

Sue Jackson pravi ...

Both cards are fabulous! I really like the sunburst stamp and how it fades away. Your poppy garden is gorgeous! Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday #150!

Valerija pravi ...

Uau, kako lepi voščilnici s sončnimi žarki. Všeč mi je, kako se mucek greje na sončku, sonce pa se mu prijazno nasmiha nazaj.
O tem polju maka sem pa že več kje brala in slišala. Bi bilo lepo iti pogledat, a je verjetno že mimo...

Linda W. (ScrappinBari) pravi ...

Gorgeous twofer, Sonja - just love your sweet scene on card one and the large poppies on card two. What beautiful fields of poppies by your house too!!

Nonni pravi ...

Both of these are perfectly springy for our challenge! Love the scene you created with the kitten... And that poppy just pops lol! So beautiful! Thank you for joining us at Time Out Challenges!

Cazro pravi ...

A sweet card with the sunrays. Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday. Caz. DT

Ne-Ja pravi ...

Sploh ne vem katera mi je bolj všeč - maki ali nagajiv mucek.... Čudovita inspiracije s sončnimi žarki :).

Anita in France pravi ...

What a sweet, whimsical, sunny scene you created for that cute kitty, Sonja ... it's so summery and fun! Your poppies are stunning ... so bold and vibrant ... a beautifully composed design ... and what a treat to have a poppyfield like this close to your home, it's a joy! Hugs, Anita :)
