I tried Jennifer McGuire's great tutorial Die Cut + Stamping. Ummm....I think for a 'first time try' a solid die cut would have been easier than the individual letters in the word "hello"; oh well, still think it turned out super cute and unexpected! I used various circles on hand and a variety of inks. To get the sparkle, I used a clear Wink of Stella pen only on the solid medium sized circles.
Just as Jennifer did in her video, I cut 8 additional pieces of lightweight card stock to create my own chip board underneath the stamped letters; they fit right back into the die cut space just like a puzzle.
