Flower For Katie


In Honor of Katie Renz

The Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team decided to honor Katie with a blog hop casing her cards.

A little recap for those of you who may not know....Katie passed away (not yet 40) earlier this month from a year long battle with a rare stomach cancer. She is survived by her three young children and husband.

You should have come from SHELL'S BLOG.
If not, you'll want to start at the beginning on the CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS BLOG.


I was inspired by the die on Katie's card. I made mine a shape card. I used the same stamp set BLOOMING BOUQUET from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
For my sentiment I used A GODLY MOTHER.

Stamps/Images: Blooming Bouquet, A Godly Mother (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Cardstock/Papers:Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Inks/Markers: Memento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Tropical Mist, Spring Leaf, Pucker Up Palette Ink Pads (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Accents/Tools:Tim Holtz Blender Tool, Spellbinders Curved Rectangles, Cuttlebug

Love you Katie. I am thankful to have know you! MWAH.

Both of your cards are wonderful. I felt like the sentiment you used on your card spoke directly to Katie. I love your inking techniques and plan to come back to read your tutorials. What a beautiful way to celebrate someone's life. I will pray for her family.
