May SFYTT Simple Sunflowers

I am not good at making up my own design for cards, so I enjoy doing sketches. I like the Sketch For You To Try that comes around each month. I needed some birthday cards, so I made several of these. It's not as time consuming when you make the same design for several cards at once.
I used Papertrey Ink's Simple Sunflower stamp set for this.
All materials were Papertrey Ink except the patterned paper was October Afternoon.

Our little grand nephew turned one in March. I made this tag to go on his gift bag. All supplies were Papertrey Ink.

Easter Tags

My friend, Girlville, asked me to make some tags for her to put on her Easter tree. I always enjoy making tags for her when she ask. It makes me get to work on a project, and I enjoy that.

I made these tags except for a couple that I bought from etsy. I'll identify which ones those were.

Here is the bunch that I made myself.


Most of my supplies were from Papertrey Ink or Michael's. I had some fun chipboard Easter decoration things from Michael's from about two years ago. Glad I could put them to use in making these tags.


The tag on the left was white before I painted it pink with some acrylic craft paint. The flowers were off white, and I used an alcohol marker to color them blue.

These two tags I bought from two different sellers on etsy. They made some pretty tags!

This is my husband's favorite tag of this group that I made. I painted the yellowish tag with white stain from Tim Holtz Distress stains. The color was Picket Fence. I stamped the flourishes with stamps from PTI and in Spring Moss ink from PTI. The little tiny tag near the ribbon is die cut from Tiny Tags from PTI along with the Tiny Tag Happy Easter stamp. The water can with flowers and the bumble bee were from K & Co. from Michael's from a few years ago that I still had in my stash. The yellow ribbon at the bottom was in my stash along with the yellow seam binding at the top.
I made this card using Papertrey Ink stamp set Friendship Jar Spring Fillers and dies and the Medallion background stamp. PTI inks and buttons. The doily is from a package of supplies I got from somewhere...but probably is one of those wilton 4 inch doilies you can get at Michael's.
Two more tags made with PTI Tag Sale dies and the rosette is Tim Holtz Sizzix rosette die. The chick and bunny were from stickers from Michael's.
The tag on the left is my favorite of these tags. I cut the tag shape using PTI tag sale die and then die cut the zigzag colors using PTI papers. I glued the zigzags all together on piece of copy paper and then die cut with the Tag Sale die and glue it to the Tag Sale die I had already cut. The bunny is a sticker from Michael's. Ribbon from PTI. The pink bird is a felt cutout sticker from Martha Stewart Crafts. I die cut the white and green glitter paper from Michael's using Spellbinders dies. Attached Hero Arts pink pearls around the edge. Found that cute pink and green ribbon at Michael's.
