Although this is a font set, my objective was to use the stamps for something other than words.  

I used planned random stamping starting with an X on each image.  the first image is cocoa stamped letters on a hollyhock background.  Once I had an area stamped, I cut it out in a circle and then used the corner rounder to create a scalloped edge.  I then affixed a label with ribbon and stamped Happy Bday.

The second card was initially created the same as the first except I stamped on White card stock and then colored the letters.  I also created two images so I could stack them and create a flower.  The other embellishments were created with Cricut and Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Once I had the flower image laid out, I stamped HAPPY bIRtHdaY, in cocoa, in the lower right hand corner.  Below is a detail image:
