This kit is such an amazing one, I love coffee and tee, an this kit is perfect for birthdays, friends etc. 
For my first card I used the Cuppa Tea set and coordinating dies and border dies. I stamped the tea pot in Midnight ink, then using masking I stamped the flower and leaves. Stamped the lid and bottom and die cut it. I assembled my card onto Premium white card stock with the bottom die cut using the Bordering Sweet die. I stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink. 





For my 2nd card I used the Woo Hoo stamp set and hooray dies. I stamped the balloons using : Tiki Torch, Party Dress, All that Jazz, Mellon Ice and Sweet Sixteen inks. Them stamped the sentiment and die cut Hooray from Midnight card stock 3 times and adhered them together for added dimension. I assembled the card and added die cut party hat.
