These are some supplies I used
Let's start from the beginning:

1-The tag was cut with American Crafts textured cardstock; one time in the deep red and then on beige.

2-The beige cardstock was then colored with those paints you are looking at from Yasutomo and I purchased them in a not so local scrapbook store. They have a nice shine to them and I really love them. I do not have any of those nice misters but this set do its job well. 

3- I then used my Cuttlebug to emboss it with my Perfectly Paisley embossing folder.

4- I have tons of stamps: cheap ones and not so cheap but not as expensive as SU brand (I do not own any SU yet) but this is the second time I use this sunflower from the dollar clear stamps. Isn't gorgeous? 

5- I do not have Copics but Marvy Uchida markers I got at M's once for $5 in clearance. I used the yellow, brown and orange one for the sunflower and then I used the copper Yasutomo paints to give them that deeper and shiny color to them.

6- I took one of my dollar wooden stamps and stamped three leaves with green ink and I used the green Yasutomo on them too.

7-I used another dollar clear stamp for the sentiment and added a small faux jewel from my stash.

8- I added that beautiful button from my button's box.

9- I forgot I had to used patterned paper so I made a button using the Martha Stewart button punch and added some twine and used the same twine for the holder and...
10- Now, that tag hangs on one of my kitchen cabinets. Phew! I do not think I ever explained my projects in so much detail...lol.
Hope you like it and get inspired to make some tags for this coming season. Use them in homemade goodies, hostess gifts, presents, your garden harvest and more.
A couple more pics I forgot to add:

Have fun and I love you all!
