My Kitchen My Rules Sublimation Trivet with Artesprix

Hello all, Lori here, time for some new and quick easy sublimation crafting inspiration. This project features Artexprix Markers and Stamp refill ink along with the Trivet Sublimation Blank. The trick to this project is to use a Universal Pen Adapter in a Cricut machine to accommodate an Artesprix Sublimation Marker.  This will allow you to print an image that is sublimation ready.  Check out the step by steps below to find out how to use a Cricut machine with Artesprix Markers to create a quick and easy Decorative Trivet.

What is Sublimation Iron-on-Ink? 
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 surfaces (must have polyester in it or have a polyester coating). Once the project is transferred to the blank, it is lifetime permanent. Before Artesprix, you would need a fancy printer to experience this level of personalization, but not anymore!

Step 7: Make a "Sublimation Sandwich" by placing the prepared paper and Trivet between two pieces of protective paper.

Step 8: Heat set using appropriate settings for the blank. These Trivets call for a transfer time of 105 seconds at 400℉.

Step 9: After heat set, take-a-peek at the transfer to ensure it was successful, do not remove tape until transfer is confirmed. By not removing the tape out of place, it gives you the ability to re-heat if needed.

I love it when a crafty plan comes together! This blank is only available for February 2024 so grab it while you can. But don't forget you can use this technique with any sublimation blank you might have on hand! Now it’s time to plan your next project with Artesprix Iron-on-Ink Sublimation Arts & Crafts Supplies!
Happy Day!
