Below is a sympathy card I made last week for a neighbor. I used a piece that I had made in June with the Blown Glass like technique and used the Butterfly Punch and the Itty Bitty punches to create my butterfly and flower center pieces.
Here is a close up of the details:

I love Stampin' Up!'s new catalog and hope you do too!!!!
Since I am a Maine girl, the images I saw in this picture eminded me of Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine. The water rushes in and then explodes against the rock walls. It is fun to watch as long as you abide by the rules in place for your safety.
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Garden Green, Whisper White
Ink: Refills same colors
Accessories: Lace Ribbon Border, Medium Window Sheets
I am working on typing up the process on how I arrived at this technique. It is taking longer than I thought, however, I should have it finished tomorrow.
UPDATE: It is finished! Click HERE for link.

When I was a child, I used to love to lay on the grass and look up at the clouds and "see" different shapes or things. So when I saw Donna's (of Butternut Sage Designs), Blown Glass Technique Cards, I knew it was something I could have "fun" with again. First, I did not purchase her instructions, I just love a challenge and this seemed to be an easy one. Not quite as easy as I imagined, it took several trys until I finally created this image. Which looks more like Donna's Blown Glass Cards that I have seen.
For the fun — what do you "see"? I see lava splashing in to a pool and a branch on fire. I know, I know — I have a vivid imagination and I used artistic license in the colors.
My earlier tries started with the card below which I posted earlier. Looks more like what is being called the streaky glass technique cards I have seen. This is totally different then the one above and so is the technique.
Close up of the technique detail.
I have several more different cards using this technique that I will be posting this week. Let me know what you think. Since I do not know how close it is the Blown Glass Technique, maybe I should give it a different name. It's a combination of Reinker Spread, Blowing Bubbles, and Ink, Spray & Mash Techniques. If you are a customer of mine I will be making a technique card for this and will enclose it with your first online order from the new catalog in July! Club members will get the card at their July club meeting.
Please post a comment below and tell me what you "see".
