Champion Guest Designer : Riti Poddar

Hello and Happy Hump Day! Although, the weather here today in the mid-west is yucky with rain and cloudy sky, Riti Poddar, our 3rd Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Champion had brighten our day with a bright and cute project. She created a giant tag with a bright color palette and an adorable critter, which makes us so happy! Check out all the details below!


Hi Friends! I am Riti Poddar from A Lil' Piece of Heaven and I'm so excited & honored to be here as the Guest Designer. I'm from India & I have been crafting since I was a little girl. I enjoy Paper Crafting of all kinds, from Card Making to Scrapbooking, Altered Art to Mixed Media. I love them all! I love trying out new techniques with different types of inks, mediums & other supplies. I also have found my new love in planners...I just bought one for 2016 and I'm loving it!

Well for the Current Challenge I Chose the Top Most Row with 'Bunny + Pocket + Tag'.  And this is what I came up with...a huge tag!!

The tag measures 8"x 5" (I told ya it's huge!!). I cut it out from a heavy chipboard. The die cuts - bunny, flowers & carrot have been cut on my Cricut Expression, using the 'Create A Critter' Cartridge. I pop dotted the layers for the extra dimension & also distressed it using my distress inks. I did some doodling on them using my Signo White & Black Gel pens to add some interest. The pocket has been hand drawn & cut using some pattern papers from my stash. I also added some faux stitched lines using my Gel Pens all around the pocket & tag.

I stamped the Sentiment from the "Oh Deer" Clear Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp using my Opaque White Stazon Ink. I also added a strip of pink cardstock to the top of the tag & punched it using my Martha Stewart All over the Page Punch - 'Bubble Bath' & added a couple of twine for the bow. Lastly, I added a cute button on the bow to finish my tag.

This was so much fun to make. I hope you like it & will take on this challenge. Get your crafty hats on & take the plunge! Good Luck everybody! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

Hugs & Love
