If you love working with foil you will love this HOT new tool from We R Memory Keepers! The Heat Wave Foil Pen lets you add custom foil accents to cards, tags, gifts, home decor, party favors, and other papercrafting projects. This precision foil pen is battery powered so the cord doesn't get in the way of your work and for best results, must be used with Heatwave Foil. This Heatwave Foil Pen works with metal rulers, die cut paper stencils, metal dies, and most templates. The pen has a thicker tip giving you broader coverage on your papercrafting projects. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use! This package includes:
You can now use almost any stencil to add foil to your projects. The trick is to let it heat up for 8-10 minutes to make sure it is really hot before you start using it for the first time. With a slow and steady motion, simply trace the outline of your stencil to create beautiful foiled images on cards, scrapbook pages, DIY projects and more. Larger stencils with open spaces seem to work best. The stencil has to be wider than the tip of the tool to create nice even contact with the surface of the project.
For product samples I posted a few images that you might enjoy.

I am loving the Heatwave tool. It works really well with all the stencils I have at home. I also did some free hand and it worked great. I did find that it was easier to use while standing up, gave me more control. But it glides nicely and I was pretty pleased with the finished look.
I purchased a HEATWAVE foil pen, extra foil and some templates. I liked it so much, that I ordered another one and more foil and templates for my friend in England. Since it is battery powered, it will be great for her as she will not need to deal with voltage and electrical plug adapters. I picked my order up at the store and followed the instructions of the knowledgeable lady who gave me my order. I let it heat up for 10 minutes and used new batteries. I got excellent results the very first time. I also used it with stencils that I had and they also worked well.
At first I was a bit leery on buying this product with some of the bad reviews that I read. I have to say that I love this product. It works well and it is easy to use. You do have to have good lighting when using this product so assure that you get all the area covered that you want. The little light that is on it is OK but doesn't give you the amount you need. The battery back is a tad hard to get off but truthfully I rather it be hard to get off rather than it falling off all the time.

Since foiling is so trendy right now I had to give the Heatwave Pen a try. I like that you can add foiling to any paper, but what's really great is the ability to add foiled effects to 3 dimensional embellishments that won't fit into the MINC. I added foiling to wood veneer embellishments and loved the look! I also like that you can add very tiny foiled effects and that since it is basically a pen, you can foil your own handwriting or hand drawn shapes. This is a very easy to use tool!
