Iron-on-Ink Blank Picture Frame using Artesprix Products
Create a custom Picture Frame using Iron-on-Ink Sublimation Markers!
Nicole here! I finally got the chance to play with the Blank Picture Frame and I need more of these in my life. A few weeks ago, I was in the mood to color so I pulled out a sheet of copy paper, Picture Frame, Artesprix’s Gnomie Botanical Sublimation Markers, Sublimation Stamp Pad, and stamps and just played. It was so much fun!
I’m seriously loving the gnomes lately. They are sooooo cute. Trinity Stamps just released the cutest stamps so I played with three different stamp sets to create this adorable picture frame.
To created this Artesprix Picture Frame, you will need the following:
- Artesprix Gnomie Botanical Sublimation Markers
- Artesprix Sublimation Stamp Pad
- Artesrpix Blank Picture Frame
- Plain Copy Paper
- Artesprix Heat Tape
- Artesprix Protective Paper
- Heat Source: Artesprix Heat Press, Dry Iron, or Home Iron
- Artesprix Acrylic Stamp Block
- Artesprix Project Mat
Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1. To begin, I used the Artesprix Picture Frame as a template to trace on white cardstock using a pencil.
I colored the images using the Gnomie Botanical Sublimation Markers. Make sure to color outside the lines to avoid any white from peeping around the edges!
Use the heat tape to secure image in place over the paper and then cut two pieces of Artesprix Protective paper and create (as Artesprix likes to call it) a “sublimation sandwich,” which means you place your project facing the top between two sheets of protective paper. (This is a photo from after I removed it from the heat press… I forgot to take a picture of Sublimation Sandwich.)
Set your heat press to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and timer for 30 seconds. Make sure you place your project in your heat source with the design on top of your sublimation sandwich. You want your design face top to your blank at the top of your sublimation sandwich, pictured above. After your timer has completed, make sure to let your project cool down before touching it.
Gently remove the protective paper from the Artesprix Picture Frame to reveal your unique vivid design! Assemble picture frame as desired, vertically, or horizontally. Place protective mylar film in the picture frame before assembling.
