Just Us Girls #195 - Wild Card Challenge - Tag You're It!

Hi crafty friends!  This month over at Just Us Girls, we have an extra week of challenges and that means the hostess gets to choose any challenge she wants to throw at us!  Elise is our hostess this week, and she has challenged us to make a set of 4 coordinating tags.  What a fun challenge!  I love tags, and now I have some on hand to attach to a gift.  I may even enter one of these in our local county fair in August!
Here is my set of tags.  Lots of stuff going on with each of them.  I love how colorful they are!
 
First of all, each tag was run through Papertrey Ink's Linen and Canvas Impression Plate (the canvas side) and each has a large white eyelet in the top.  I used PTI's Back Pocket Basics stamp set for a 4 tags as well.  The base of this tag is poppy parade cardstock.  The pockets were die cut from both white cardstock and two different fabric pieces.  I stamped the fabric with the detail stamp with Versafine onyx black ink and then glued it to the cardstock.  On this one I colored the flowers with copic markers and added the bling for the centers.  The little posies tag coming from the pocket was stamped in wild wasabi ink.  The white piece was stamped with the first part of the sentiment in the Versafine ink and then the Posies sentiment in real red.  The ric-rac ribbon is a lime green felt.

 
This was done in the same manner as the one above, except I used a different fabric and the sun and face stamps.  I added star dust stickles to the rays.  The sun was colored with copic markers and the little sunshine tag on the pocket was stamped with tangerine tango ink.
 
 The base of this tag is lucky limeade cardstock.  I changed up the ribbon using a red and white gingham.  The little sunshine tag on the pocket and the sentiment on the bottom were stamped in daffodil delight.  This tag was supposed to say "Sunshine" instead of "Birthday Wishes".  I messed up!
 
Same tag as above.  The ink used on the little tag is real red.  This one should have been stamped with the "Birthday Wishes" instead of "Sunshine".  Oh well!
