Artesprix – Decorative Sign

Hello all,

I’m over on the Artesprix blog with a new Sublimation project using Artesprix Iron On Inks and Inkpads.

What is Sublimation ink (iron on ink/paint)? It is an interesting and fun product that allows you to create a design on standard copy paper that can then be heat transferred onto sublimation ready surfaces. The whole process is really magical!

We are now thoroughly into fall in my neck of the woods and I thought a “Happy Fall” Decorative Sign would be the perfect addition to my fall decorations. And can I just say…I love this sublimation ready Decorative Sign by Artesprix. I think I will be making a sublimation Decorative Sign for each and every holiday!

Artesprix Products:
Protective Project Mat
Sublimation Ink Pad – Black
Sublimation Acrylic Paint – Lighten Medium, Black
Protective Paper
Decorative Sign
Stencil – Modern Alphabet
Heat Tape
Sublimation Markers – Black

Other Products:
Computer Paper
Heat Press
Lori’s Cards and Creations Stamp set – Winter/Fall Swirls, Happy Fall.

Be You: Sublimation Tumbler & Coaster

Hello all,

I am testing out the prototype of my new Sublimation Stamped Words set and created this fun Tumbler and Coaster. The Sublimation Word set (that I hope to have in production soon) is a set of my favorite phrases and words from the Be You and Winter stamp lines. I loved that I was able to stamp these faves’ directly onto my sublimation project without having to do any fancy dancing to get the image reversed. Awesome!

If you would like to create this project you can still use the Dragonfly and words from the Be You set, you will just need to use your typical method of reversing the word images for the sublimation transfer.

There has been a change in where you can fine my “Be You” stamp line that is being produced and distributed by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. It is no longer directly available from the Emerald Creek website and will soon be sold by specific retailers. So, keep post for more information.

For step by steps, please check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below.

Shabby Chic framed Dragonfly – Inspired by…

This project idea was inspired by a Youtube video by Caroline, “My Home of the Hillside”. In her video, Caroline created 3 Shabby Chic projects featuring Rosette Roses hand-made from strips of scrap fabric. Well, I just had to try making these beautiful trash to treasure roses! And with that, came my Shabby Chic framed Dragonfly project. This creation features an upcycled old frame and other reuse and repurposed materials.

Be sure to watch Caroline’s video on how to make these Rosette Roses as well as my Quick Tips Mixed Media video below for the step by steps on my project.

Dew Drop Shamrock

Hello all,

Back again with another project using Dew Drops by The Robin’s Nest Creative. For this project, I am adding on to my last blog (Heart Ornament with Easel, featuring Dew Drops) by creating another Dew Drop Ornament. In that project I created an easel to hang seasonal ornaments from. So, being that it is nearly St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would create a little Shamrock of Dew Drops to hang on my easel (check instagram for photo on the Easel mentioned above).

Be sure to scope out the Mixed Media Quick Tips Video below for the step by steps.
