Mini is Marvelous - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for this Technique Blog Hop as we feature artwork that [somewhat] aligns with our theme of "Mini is Marvelous"! Participants have the opportunity to interpret that in any way they can so I am sure we are bound to see some GREAT stuff!

If you are coming from Katy's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants below, if you were to get lost along the way.
My "mini" is interpreted in the way of "mini pieces" which were used to cutesy up this awesome new Thin Cut that just debuted in our newest Idea Book. Believe me, there were A LOT OF MINI PIECES but it made the final result well worth it!
This thin metal die, It's Your Day, comes as one piece and there are some fun ways to use it like that. However, I decided to do some paper-piecing so that I could get different papers in various areas of the diecut image. (The cut shape is 3 3/4" x 5".)
To get this end result, I cut this Thin Cut onto four different pieces of paper. First, it was cut on Raspberry cardstock. Next, I also cut it on Gold Glitter Paper, Gold Foil Paper, and lastly, on the striped patterned paper that is part of Documented.

I carefully trimmed the pieces that I wanted to 3-D/layer onto the Raspberry base so they would fit as desired. I had the "your" banner and the many mini pieces of paper for the candles and flames. I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen for adhering all pieces of the Thin Cut.

I LOVE the result of these efforts - well worth it, although a bit crazy - and hope you do, too!

Now, head on over to Michelle's Blog to see her "mini" creation; whatever that might be. Thanks so much, as always, for stopping by and please consider leaving a comment before hopping to Michelle. Enjoy your weekend!
