Crafting with the Cricut Infusible Ink Markers
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
If you are a Cricut owner you may have heard about the awesome Infusible Ink line they have come out with. I was a bit hesitant about it at first but I was excited to see what it can do! So I tested it out...
What is Infusible ink you ask? The Cricut Infusible Ink is an ink transfer material that allows you to create professional level projects. The ink becomes one with fibers of your material. There is no peeling, no cracking, no wrinkling and no flaking. It is machine washable. The line has pens, markers and Infusible ink transfer sheets. They are compatible with all Cricut machines. One issue I have is that it is only to be used to Cricut Infusible Ink system compatible products.
I tested it out on a t-shirt. This compatible shirt by Cricut is 95% Polyester and 5% spandex.
For all your Cricut help, follow the directions for Infusible Markers, here: Cricut Help.
My tips for using the Infusible Inks:
- make sure you're using laser printer paper.
- Be sure to pick a design that is detailed, but not too small. Make sure you use the right marker or pen for your liking.
- Best used with the Cricut EasyPress and EasyPress Mat.
- Be sure to use butcher paper as directed. If you use the Cricut Infusible Ink Sheets, butcher paper comes in the package.
- Use the heat resistant tape
Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1 Draw your image. You can use the Cricut Design Space images or upload your own. I used one from the Cricut Access.
Step 2 Color in your design if needed.
Step 3 Using the Cricut EasyPress Mat, place your blank on top. Use a piece of white cardstock to protect your blank and the mat.
Step 4 Use a lint roller to roll the area of your blank.
Step 5 Cover the blank with butcher paper to remove wrinkles and moisture.
Step 7 Place the design face down on your blank.
Step 8 Tape down the corners of your design to avoid shifting.
Step 9 Place the butcher paper on top of your design and press. Cricut EasyPress Heat Transfer Guide
Step 10 Let the butcher paper cool before removing.
