DIY Poly Canvas Zip Case with Artesprix’s Sublimation Markers & Ink Pad – Be a Unicorn

Create A Cute D.I.Y. Make-up bag using Artesprix Sublimation Markers and Ink Pad with the Poly Canvas Zip Case

Hello Artesprix fans! I am back with another fun project, using Artesprix’s sublimation markers and ink pads along with the Poly Canvas Zip Case.

Here’s what you’ll need to create the project.

Materials:

Tools:

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Step 1.

Place the Poly Canvas Zip Case on a piece of plain copy paper and trace the outline using a pencil to determine the area that you have to work on.

Step 2.

I free-handed my rainbow using Artepsrix Pastel Sublimation Markers.

Step 3.

I traced the Unicorn’s ears using a pencil and the coordinating die that came from the stamp set.

Step 4.

I used my Artesprix Fine Point Black Sublimation Marker to draw the Unicorn’s ears.

Step 5.

I placed my design inside my stamping tool to stamp the rest of the images, using the Artesprix Sublimation Stamp Pad.

Step 6.

I Placed my design on the light box to trace the sentiment using my Sublimation Marker.

Step 7.

Before you attach the design on your blank, make sure that you use a lint remover to remove any hair or unwanted particles.

Using Artesprix Heat Tape, tape your blank down to your design. [Designer tip: I used my LED light box to make sure that my images are perfectly centered. ] If you are using the Artesprix Heat Press, you only need one on each side to hold it down. If you are using an iron, you will need more. Sometimes the iron will cause the image to slip and you will get a ghost image. [Only use Artesprix Heat Tape on the outer edge of the design (not over it).]

Step 8.

Turn your heat press on and set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer for 45 seconds. Once you reach your desired temperature, you are ready to heat press.

Step 9.

Create your sublimation sandwich. Cut two pieces of Protective Paper to cover your project on the top and bottom. [Designer tip: Make sure that your design is facing the heat source and the zipper is out of the way before you heat press.] Place it inside the Heat Press and close the machine. The Heat Press will beep indicating that your project is finished!

Step 10.

While wearing protective gloves, lift the handle, and take your design and place them on the Protective Project Mat. Wait for a few minutes until it is cool enough to reveal your design. Gently remove the paper to reveal the design!

Step 11.

I wanted to add some “bling” so I decided to add some rhinestone jewels to the flowers. I used my super-strong mixed media glue to adhere them onto the zip case. I also added the gold bow to finish my design.

Here’s the full reveal! It turned out so CUTE!

I love how the Sublimation Markers just blended so well to create the pastel rainbow! Here’s a closer look:

Be a Unicorn in a field of horses!

Now that I have made this project, I cannot wait to create some T-shirts and Pet Bandanas! I really love how this one turned out!

If All Else Fails, Put On a Tutu and Twirl

I’m back today for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sharing a slimline card, showcasing the Tutu stamp set and Ballerina Fri-dies.

I ink-blended my slimline panel with some distress oxide inks and adhered this piece on a slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 7 scored at 3/12 inches.

I used a die from my collection to die-cut the “film strip” and foam-mounted this piece on my colored background.

I stamped the little ballerinas with some black alcohol ink and die-cut using the Ballerina Fri-dies.  I also foam-mounted them onto my card for added dimension.

I ink-blended another piece of card stock and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I sprinkled some clear embossing powder, and heat-set using my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered this on the card with foam adhesive.

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add more texture to the sentiment and adhered some iridescent jewels on each of the ballerina’s hair.  Here’s another look:

I’m Done Adulting. Let’s Be Mermaids!

Hello my crafty peeps! Maria here on the blog with you today sharing two summer-themed cards, showcasing one of my favorite stamp sets from the summer release called “Mermaid Treasures“, along with the Under the SeaOcean Waves and Mermaid Shimmer stencils.

For my under the sea card on the left, I started by inking up the background with my blending brushes and Ocean Waves and Under the Sea stencils using a combination of the Marina MadnessTropical Sea and Four Leaf hybrid inks.  I used the same stencil and some glitter glitz gel to add more texture to the school of fishies.  I also die-cut two borders using the By The Sea border die and foam-mounted these pieces onto the colored panel.  I adhered this to an A2 size card base.

Next, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out and adhered them using either some foam or liquid adhesive for added dimension.

Lastly, I adhered some Sparkling Clear Droplets to my card for added texture.  Don’t they just look like bubbles?  Here’s another look:

Since I colored a lot of images, I decided to make another card.  I used some low-tack tape to mask both sides of my A2-size card panel.  I used my blending brushes with the Mermaid Shimmer stencil, and colored the background mixing the Fandango and Tangerine Dream hybrid inks.  

I used my glitter glitz gel to add more texture to the background.  I love the glittery effect it gave on the card.  I die-cut two strips of black card stock and adhered it both sides.  I also cut some strips of the patterned paper from the Seaside paper pack.

I foam-mounted my focal image and used my shimmer pen to add some highlights to her hair.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with watermark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment and die-cut using the Sentiment Stack die.  I adhered this piece with some foam adhesive.  Here’s another look:

This card is really simple but I love the textured background!  

Don’t you just love the mermaid images on the Mermaid Treasures stamp set?  They are beyond adorable!  I also LOVE, love, love the new stencils!  I can’t really pick a favorite!  LDRS Creative has an amazing line of stencils that you can use to create a wonderful scene on your projects. 

I hope I have given you some great inspiration today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by the happy stamping!

Happy Anniversary Card with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

A friend of mine asked me to create an anniversary card for his wife so it’s all about flowers and anniversaries today!  

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Pretty Posies stamp set and Posies Fri-Die.

 

I started by stamping the images on some vellum with versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.

I die-cut the flowers using the coordinating dies.  I flipped the cut images on the other side and used my alcohol markers to color them in.  I set them aside to dry and started working on my background.

I die-cut an A2 size panel of white card stock and used some dye inks and blending brush to lightly color the background.  I pressed the same ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water.  I used my paint brush to splatter some color on my background for a more cohesive look, and added texture.

 I adhered the vellum flowers on the card using my Xyron sticker maker and some foam adhesive for added dimension.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and added the Sparkling Hearts droplets on the card.  Here’s another look:

You’re One in a Chameleon with Spectrum Noir

Lately, it seems that I have been creating a lot of rainbow-themed cards!  I just love the bright colors and they make me happy!  One thing I LOVE about Spectrum Noir is that they not only have amazing alcohol and aqua markers, colored pencils, but they also have a wide-range of ink pads.  The ink pads are so juicy and so easy to use and the colors are so vibrant.  They are my go-to when it comes to stamping color images.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers, as well as the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks.  The stamp set I used today is by Your Next Stamp.

 

 

Step-by-Step Instruction:

 

  • Gather supplies to create your card.

 

 

 

  • Position your card panel inside your stamping tool and stamp the image in rainbow order.  I used SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks in Chinese Red, Pink Tulip, Lemon Tonic, Grasshopper, Oasis and Crushed Velvet.

 

 

  • Adhere the colored image on the background with foam adhesive for added dimension.
  • Adhere some sparkling clear jewels for added texture.

 

  • Finish the design by stamping the sentiment with Spectrum Noir Harmony quick Dry Ink in Black.

Summer Cards with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello everyone!   Are you all enjoying your summer?  I am going stir crazy because it is so HOT where I live and with the current “situation” all over the world, the only way I can enjoy the beach and see sea creatures is making a card!  I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs with some summer-themed cards, showcasing the Tranquil Tides stamp set and dies along with the land borders die and Circle Frames Die set.

 

 

To create this first card, I stamped the images using my Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks.  I used the coordinating die to die-cut the images.

 

 

I randomly stamped more images on an A2 size card panel to fill in the spaces. 

 

I used the hill from the Land Border die set to die-cut two wavy panels and adhered them onto the card with foam adhesive for added dimension.  I added the rest of the images on the card with either foam or liquid adhesive.

 

 

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment on the card with Versafine Onyx black ink and adhered the Sparkling Clear Droplets for added texture.  Don’t they look like bubbles? Here’s another look at the card:

 

 

For my second card below, I went for a simple nautical design.  I stamped the images using the same Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks.  

 

 

I used the smallest circle from the Circle Frames Die Set to die-cut the stamped image and foam mounted this piece on the card.  I stamped the sentiment a few times with Versafine Onyx black ink to make it stand out a little and give it more texture.

 

 

I finished my design by adding two black strips and using my black gel pen, I dotted them on each crab’s eyes.  I adhered this panel on an A2 size card base.

 

I hope you like my cards today and got inspired.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.

Birthday Gnomes Card with Trinity Stamps

Hello all! I hope you all had a great week. Happy Saturday! My Canon camera finally gave up on me so while I am waiting for the replacement (it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get to me now since I am overseas), I will be sharing some projects on the blog with you instead.

For my card today, I used a LOT of products from the shop. I am showcasing the adorable Make A Wish stamp set, Just For You stamp set, Create with Trinity stamp set. The dies I used for this card are the Stitched Card Panels and Windows with the Serious Celebration die set.

I started by using the biggest die from the Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set to die cut some Bristol smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks with the Trinity Blending Buddy brushes and used my paintbrush and to flick some water on this panel for added texture. I picked the excess water with some paper towel.

I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock using the windows panel die. I foam-mounted this piece on the ink-blended background for added dimension.

I stamped and colored the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the images in. Since I didn’t get the coordinating dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images. I foam mounted them onto the window panel for added dimension.

I love coloring my images with bright colors!

For added texture, I die-cut the stars from the Serious Celebration die set and adhered them on the card with some liquid glue. I adhered the colored panel on an 8 1/2 by 7 inches slimline card base. Here’s a closer look:

To finish my design I stamped the sentiment from the Create with Trinity stamp set and Just For You stamp set.

I hope you like my card today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
