Now onto some CREATIVE Fun stuff from Leticia!

Hi Creative Friends! ACJwM Creative Crew member Leticia Arvizu here! I am so excited to share my creations with all of you today for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! If you love coffee as much as I do then I am sure you are using coffee mugs, coffee cups and coffee sentiments in all of your crafting! I personally love to use ALL of them! I used ACJwM Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy stamp set for the two cards I am sharing with you all!! I’ve really been on the snail mail kick lately. It really is nice to receive happy mail. I love when I receive a handmade card in the mail. One of my girlfriends and I have been corresponding via mail lately, and she’s as much as a coffee lover as I am. So for my first card I used the coffee mug and “hello friend” sentiment. Fall is in the air and pumpkin spice latte is my fave right now! Pumpkin everything, yes please!!

My second card actually doubles as a gift card holder. I needed a thank you card for a great friend who has shown me so much kindness recently. I used the coffee cup and sleeve along with the “Thanks a latte!” sentiment stamp. I kept with the fall theme and used paper from Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice collection. I plan on slipping a Starbucks gift card into the envelope.

    I think a kid-oriented cancer set would be great to encourage little ones who are battling with cancer.

    super cute! love the cards! Thanks for sponsoring! To answer the question – I like characters with sentiments for inside and out. I like my cards to have something on the inside unless I’m making notecards.

    Oh gosh, I love this stamp set. Especially the coffee beans. I don’t know what I would add for another coffee set; I think this one pretty much covers it! Nice work, Leticia! Thanks so much for sponsoring this fabulous hop!

    I absolutely adore this array of autumn coffee cards. I esp love the use of tulle with the twine bow. So creative and pretty. I need to remember that!
    I looked at everyone’s suggestions to you abt ideas for new stamp sets…..such fabulous ideas. I really would love to see big bold sentiments with lovely fonts. I think others have said similar, so my idea is not unique. Oh, well… 🙂 Thanks for a chance at your awesome coffee set. I would LOVE to win that!!
    Thank you, also, for sponsoring this wonderful hop. You are the best, Melissa!!

    I love your coffee projects. The stamps are so cute. I usually give coffee gift cards as thank you gifts. I’d like to seem more specific thank you sentiments. Also come vertical sentiments.

    Hi Melissa! I really love focal sentiments — big, bold sentiments that work well with backgrounds or simple border images. They make for quick cards that pack a wow! Looking forward to see what you come up with.

    Gorgeous cards! I love all the details you added! Beautiful patterned papers and I love this stamp set! And thank you for your sponsorship of the hop! These hops are so much fun – I’ve participated in every hop so far – I love all of the coffee inspiration! As for the kind of stamps I’d like to see, definitely more cats or more coffee!

    I would love to see some images that go with coffee…like cinnamon rolls (yum!), eggs and bacon,pancake stacks etc. I love my coffee, that’s for sure…but breakfast items and sayings would be fun go-withs!

    What terrific cards!
    Thank you SO MUCH for sponsoring the hop with your fab prizes!!
    This was my first visit to your site and I was pleased to see sign language stamps as I used to have deaf friends and sign language holds a special place in my heart. Right now I know there’s a shortage of stamps with greetings in Portuguese – I’d love to see someone get permission to do a Dr. Who set with a phone booth and other iconic symbols & sayings from the show – there is a goldmine of possibilities there!! I’d also love to see some stamps with fun famous quotes like, ‘You appear to be upset… may I offer you a hot beverage?’ or ‘I am not insane! My mother had me tested!!’ : ) Well, I could blather on all day with ideas, but must move on. TTFN as Tigger would say!

    Celeste Goff says:

    Love your beautiful cards Melissa and I want you to know that my granddaughter Journey is deaf (but wears cochlear implants) and I have two of your stamp sets that I stamp sign language sentiments for her on the inside of her cards. She loves them and they make her feel really special!

I am honored that you have our stamp sets and we also have a new one coming out in a few months 🙂 I think it’s wonderful that you create with those and it makes her feel special. What a gift. Sounds like you are BOTH very lucky <3 Also, please be sure to answer the question to be qualify to win our prizes. Thank you for hopping!

    Gorgeous cards! I never seem to see too many Bonsai stamps. In different sizes. My hubby does that as a hobby and I’d love to make a scrapbook of his bonsai trees.

  24. Annie
    Annie says:

    Love your cards, the leaf die cuts are gorgeous! My favorite stamps include coffee (of course!) cats and sentiments. Perhaps a cat and coffee set? Add a vintage candle in a brass holder, stack of cards, cupcake….could be called “My Favorite C’s” lol!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this inspiration! ~Annie

  25. Dee Earnshaw
    Dee Earnshaw says:

    Love how you distressed these cards to make them look slightly aged. I would like to see a stamp set that has large bold images and larger sentiments, maybe even some downward words:)

  26. Michele K. Henderson
    Michele K. Henderson says:

    Beautiful card inspiration! I would like to see warm sentiments that would work with coffee themed blog hops for the seasons, something beyond just puns. Kind words, warm phrases, caring thoughts–sometimes they are hard to find!
    Take care!
