I was trying to use my heart stamps from my Dee Gruenig Watercolor Valentine set to make a four-leaf clover card.

Here's the how-to.

Four-leaf clover card

STAMPS: Dee Gruenig’s Watercolor Valentine POSH#-82
PAPER: Scrapbook printed paper “Paper Studio” (Hobby Lobby), white card stock “Georgia Pacific”
INK: Dee Gruenig Signature Series Marvy markers from SI #127 Lime Green, #129 Posh Green, #120 Lavender
ACCESSORIES: Offray mini flower, printed paper “Provo Craft paper stack”, green cardstock-from my stash, eyelet punch “Martha Stewart”, computer/printer, copy paper, pop dots, sponge, water, acrylic block

Left side folded card/ color, stamp and cut out four heart images, attach to card with pop-dots with the point of the hearts touching in the center to form clover design
Color, cut out ribbon image, draw a clover stem with marker/attach to base of clover, attach ribbon with thin pop-dots/ attach mini flower with pop-dot
Attach punched green cardstock just above bottom edge of card/attach printed paper to top edge of green cardstock
Print sentiment in green ink on white copy paper/attach it to the cardstock overlapping the printed paper
Color #120 marker on an acrylic block to use as ink, spray water next to the ink/ use sponge to pick up the water and ink (you’ll have to re-do this a few times) rub the sponge around the edges of the card front for a muted hint of color
