Now for a bit about my project:
I used the new Sleep Over stamp set and I love the larger size of the girl on this rubber stamp set. (She's approximately 4 3/4" tall.)  I stamped her twice with Memento ink and fussy cut her out.  I fussy cut just the head from the second stamping and adhered it directly on top of the main image, giving a touch more dimension.  Copic markers were used to color the image.  This is one of the few times that I actually chose my patterned paper before coloring, as I usually color an image and then decide what might go with it.

The patterned paper was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp.  When I received the package, each of the dies were connected with that little piece of metal that you're suppose to cut off.  Each of the dies are evenly spaced and I knew I could never replicate that.  So I die cut the entire set (still connected with the metal) and then taped the back so the rectangles would not come apart.

I die cut the rectangles a second time and used one of the rectangles for a spotlight behind the girl.  Copics were used to coordinate this smaller frame to the color of her pillowcase.  VersaMark was applied on top of the frame and heat set Sparkle embossing powder for a bit of bling.   Bubble Gum glitter was added to each of the little hearts on her pajama top since most little girls love bling.  Dimensional Glue and Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft was added to her slippers.  Although it's hard to tell in the photograph, the slippers stand out from the card for a realistic look and they are so soft to touch   :-).


As a finishing touch, I added a bow and incorporated some Mon Ami Gabby Pearl Strings into the ribbon before making the final knot to form the bow.

Now you need to head on over to Marie's blog to see what she has for you.  Please be sure to leave each of us a comment for your chance to win all of the New Reveals this month.  And don't forget to check out the details on how you can be a Guest Designer for Sparkle N Sprinkle.
