Unicorn Sublimation
I started by printing this image from my Silhouette Library then coloring the image using the fine line and pastel markers. Be sure to cover everything before you move on to pressing. 

Heat Resistant Tape

Make a pressing sandwich using a piece of protective paper INSIDE the pillow case to prevent any bleed through, the colored design facing down, then another sheet of protective paper.  Press according to directions.

After pressing for the recommended amount of time, use heat resistant gloves to peel back a small section of the copy paper and make sure everything looks great before removing the paper completely.

Imagine Sublimation Trivet


Artesprix Trivet
The Artesprix Blank of the month is a fantastic trivet. There are so many possibilities with this blank! I decided to so some stamping along with the sublimation and make this Imagine art piece for the princess' bedroom. She loves to make art and I hope this inspires her!

Sublimation Markers and Stamp Pads

I started by using the Iron-on-Ink stamp pads in a variety of colors to stamp flowers and foliage around the edges. Then I used the markers to add some additional details to the stamped images. Remember,, plain Jane copy paper is what you use for your base - trace the outline of your blank onto the copy paper and then you are ready to decorate.



How to Fix Sublimation Mistakes

See that little tiny orange fingerprint that I managed to get in the middle of my copy paper while I was stamping? That will 100% transfer to your blank when you heat press it!!!!  Place a small piece of heat resistant tape on the copy paper to cover it up. Learn from my mistakes young Jedi!

Sublimation Ready to Press

 Once your have your design to your liking,, place your blank face down onto the copy paper and secure with Heat Resistant Tape.  Use enough that your blank has no chance of shifting. Trust me- you would rather use a few extra pieces of tape than ruin a project!

Sublimated Trivet

Ta-da! Your design is now permanent and won't wash or rub off. Now it's time to embellish my trivet to put in my Princess' room. 

Imagine pape piecing

I used a variety of stamps, dies, and card stocks to add this centerpiece in the middle of my trivet. This will make a fabulous addition to her art table in her room!

The Trivet is the Blank of The Month for February so be sure to grab them before they are gone. There are SO many uses for this blank. Check out some more fabulous ideas at the Artesprix Blog

Sublimation Wine Stopper DIY - Easy and Fun


Sublimation Stamp Pads Wine Stopper

Now that Christmas is behind us my thoughts are turning to spring and all the fun crafts that brings. Valentine Day is not a huge deal for us, because our wedding anniversary is that same week. But, I still like to mark the occasion - and wine is a must! 


This month the Wine Stopper is the Blank of The Month at Artesprix and it is adorable y'all. You really need to grab one - or a couple - before they are gone. They are HEAVY too - much more than I expected. AND- they each come with 4 sublimation ready gloss white inserts - so you can change them up if you wanted to!


Artesprix Wine Stopper Sublimation

I grabbed a bottle of wine - Moscato is my favorite - added some lace to dress it up, and tied a matching ribbon to hold the wine stopper in place.

Sublimation Step by Step

Step 1 : trace the blank onto copy paper using a pencil. Never a pen! Pencil will not transfer onto the blank, but a pen will.

Step 2 : stamp your design on the copy paper using clear acrylic stamp and Sublimation Ink Pad. Remember- the color of the ink changes dramatically when it is heated!

Step 3 : I used a marker and colored over the stamped image to fill the entire outlined space. 

Step 4 : place the blank face down onto the design and secure with heat resistant tape. NOTE: this blank has a protective top sheet that must be removed prior to pressing. Don't be like me and forget that step the first time!

Step 5 : (not shown) make a "sandwich" with the protective paper enclosing the blank inside, with the copy paper UP. 

Heat press - for the wine stopper it is 385° for 45 seconds. Carefully remove from protective paper and peel one side of the copy paper back to make sure everything looks great before removing it completely. 

Ta-da! You have a beautiful sublimated blank. Add to the actual wine stopper using the double sided adhesive already in place, just remove the paper covering and press the sublimated blank into place.

Cute and Easy Christmas Tags using Artesprix Sublimation Inks


Snowman Christmass Tag

Hey everyone, are you ready to get into the Christmas crafting groove?? I am ready! I am starting the season off with these super cute and easy gift tags using Artesprix Sublimation Inks and the new Blank of the Month.  The STAR shape is such and easy one to work with, so many possibilities! 

This post may contain affiliate links. I have also been provided with product to work with, but all opinions are my own. 



Step one is to trace your blank onto copy paper using a pencil - never a pen. A pencil won't transfer when heated!

I used a metal dish to hold a few drops each of the black and orange Stamp Ink Refill. I used the tiniest brush to add the details of the snowman, and a larger brush to splatter black ink on. 

How cute is this little guy??? Remember, the image will be reversed after it is pressed so plan accordingly. 

For the Christmas tree tag I used a large stamp and the Green Sublimation Ink Pad to stamp on plain copy paper. Trim the copy paper down a bit and use heat tape to adhere the blank to the design. Be sure to use enough heat tape so the blank doesn't shift!

Fold a piece of Protective Paper in half and place the layered blank inside. Heat press this blank at 400° for 75 seconds. Be sure to handle with care- it will be HOT!!! 

BAM! The easiest holiday tags you have ever made! I used some embellishments from my stash to finish the tags off, then added the included ribbon to the top of each one.
