What's that Spell?

Hello, happy Sunday!  Here's an easy sample to make, I gave this to William's soccer coach at the end of season party.  This is a really nice one for sports teams that doesn't necessarily have to have a sports image on it.  You could also use the team's colors to personalize it, but I just chose to go bright and use lots of inks.  
Be sure to scroll down for sentiment ideas for these letters!

This was a super fun one to make!  These two Lots of Letters circle images two step stamped together remind me of fun retro bottle caps, so I decided to try about every bright color combo I could make with my Memento pads* and then add some dimension and shine with my page pebbles!  
TIP:  To figure out the spacing, I just placed the sheet of pebbles over the folded base and one at a time added my letter elements, then covered it with a page pebble before moving to the next.  

TIP:  Stamp in this order:  the rim first, then the burst that fits inside, then the letter in the middle.

*From left to right with rim color listed first in each :
Bahama Blue and New Sprout
Tangelo and Cantaloupe
Roe Bud and Angel Pink
Cottage Ivy and Pear Tart
Grape Jelly and Lulu Lavender
Teal Zeal and Morocco
Nautical Blue and Summer Sky

Here are some short words you can stamp quickly and that will fit well on card fronts, most six letters or less that will fit on the cool border stamp in Lots of Letters.  
These work for many occasions and holidays:

How about: Mom, Dad, Hubby, Son, Wife, Dear, or Honey! And, many names fit perfectly too for a personalized card.
