Let's Dance with Artesprix and Designer Crafts Connection

Hi everyone, I'm participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop, and this month we are partnering with Artesprix.   Artesprix is a new to me company that allows you to use Artesprix Permanent Thermal Transfer Markers to personalize items using a sublimation heat transfer process.  It sounded a bit intimidating, but once I tried it, I was hooked!

I used one of the Artesprix Metal Bag Tags to create a fun dance tag 

I started by drawing the tag twice on copy paper, one for each side of the tag.  

Using the Artesprix Sublimation Blank Stamp Pad, I stamped 2 different images from TLC Designs' Tiptoe Fairy Dance Stamps, one on each of the drawn tags.

Next, I colored the images with Artesprix Iron-on-Ink Sublimation Markers.  I then added some confetti stamps around the images.  The colors are somewhat muted on the copy paper, but the magic happens once you heat set!

Using Artesprix Heat Tape, I taped the tag over the colored image.  The Heat Tape can be heated up to 400 degrees and easily removes once the project has been heat set.

 Create a sandwich using Artesprix Protective Paper and place the tag (image side down) on your heat surface.  Since I was using an iron, I kept the iron moving over the protective paper for approximately 3 minutes (your time will vary depending on your heating element).

Allow the tag to cool, then remove the protective paper and tape to reveal the image which has been transferred to the tag.

This was so much fun, I decided to use the Artesprix Poly Canvas Zip case.  Using the same images, I thought I'd create a Dance ensemble.  Unfortunately, I did not tape the images in place securely and because I was using an iron, the images slipped.  I did not get the clean, crisp image as I did on the tag.  Lesson learned - tape securely!!

This is definitely a fun and creative way to use your stamps to create amazing projects.
Please stop by the Designer Crafts Connection blog to see what the designers have created this month with products from Artesprix.

Christmas place cards/candy treats

Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything you want, just be sure it includes more than one score.

Guardian of Autumn Treasures

Welcome everyone, hope you are enjoying the rest of 2021!  Today, I'm using some amazing stamps  Blank Page Muse.

Stamps used: Guardian of Autumn

This stamp set includes the Gnome and 2 sentiments.  Using one of the sentiments, I stamped it across the background paper.

Next, I colored the gnome, die cutting it to fit the center of the card.  The 2nd sentiment was then stamped and added to the corner with foam adhesives for dimension.

Gift Card Holder with TLC Designs

Hi everyone, I'm on the TLC Designs Blog sharing some gift card holders created with TLC Designs papers, stamps and dies.

I really don't like give gift cards as they seem so impersonal, so I like to create special gift card holders.

Starting with black cardstock cut 5" x 10", I scored it at 2", 4 3/4", 6" and 7 1/4" and folded as shown above.

I glued the center piece together along the edges as this will create the holder for the gift card.  Using the oval die from the Celebrate Frame Die, I placed it along the fold, taped it in place, then die cut.

Cut papers form the Blooming Medley Designer Paper Pack to fit both the outside and inside of the gift card holder.

Using the birthday cake ribbon strip from the Celebrate Ribbon Die, die cut it from white cardstock and die cut the cake from black cardstock, then layer together.  Fold the strip around the gift card hold and glue the ends together.

Create a second gift card holder using other papers from this paper pack.  Reverse the birthday cake ribbon strip, cutting the strip in black and the cake in white. 

Add a phrase from the Celebrate Sentiments.

Fun with Frosty Fairies

 Hi everyone, it's time to share some of the new products available at TLC Designs.

How cute are these stamps?  I've used the fairy from the Frosty Fairies set and the chipmunks from the Snow Buddies set.

Coloring the fairy with Copic Markers, I then die cut her using dies from the Happy Dragonfly Circle

Using paper from the Watercolor Naturals Paper Pack, I embossed it then assembled the card.  The phrase is also from the Frosty Fairies set.  For a fun effect, I added several chipmunks from the Snow Buddies set.

TLC Snowflakes n' Ice

Hi everyone, I'm sharing a slimline card using the new TLC Designs Snow Buddies digital stamp set.

Using the Zinnia Slimline Die, I created a card from black cardstock.

Folding cardstock, I placed the die over the fold to create the card base.  To complete the full card design, I then die cut a separate panel to adhere on the card base.

Printing the snowmen in a line, I used the next die to create the next card layer.  I added touches of color to the snowmen, then die cut the sentiment and added it to the corner of the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.



Thinking about you

 Hi everyone.  I'm using some amazing stamps from  Blank Page Muse.

Stamp the flower randomly about a white panel.  Add butterflies in the open spaces.  
I stamped Thinking about you on the panel, but didn't like it, so I stamped it again on a scrap of cardstock.

The panel was matted with yellow cardstock before being added to a black card.  
The phrase was matted with black cardstock and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanksgiving with Etchall

Hi everyone, are you getting ready for Thanksgiving?  How about creating a centerpiece for your table?

I die cut give thanks multiple times and arranged the letters around a plate.

Taping off the center of the plate, I placed etchallⓇ etching creme around the plate.

Letting the etching creme sit approximately 15 minutes, I removed it and placed the etching creme back into its original container.

After rinsing and drying the plate, "give thanks" stands out against the frosted plate.

I created a Thanksgiving centerpiece by adding die cut felt leaves and a jar containing fall themed ornaments and flowers.
