Enjoying "Heat Wave"!

Hello friends! 
Today's post is about "HeatWave"
It's not the heat wave (weather -related) that I am talking about.

The "Heat Wave Pen Tool Started Kit" is a little nifty gadget that allows you to add foil to your project. This product was introduced in 2015. You can see the intro video here.

About this tool: Easily apply foil to cards, scrapbook pages, home decor projects, and more! Use the Heatwave Pen with stencils to apply foil designs or create your own. This precision foil applicator pen is battery powered so there’s no cord to tangle with and a protective storage lid is included. You can easily see the project you’re working on using the handy light guide. The starter kit includes a battery operated Heatwave Pen tool with a lid for safe storage and (20) 4 x 6 inch sheets of foil in pink, gold, blue, red and silver. You can buy the foil paper separately here.

This kit by We R Memory Keepers is $29.99. Remember a while ago, Simon Says Stamp has a few flash sales??? Well, this item was one of them and I got it for $9.99! What a steal! See, this is something that I watch out for when there is a good sale and forgive me for being an enabler!

I decided to try it out with the new STAMPtemebr Damask stencil.
Perhaps this is not the best stencil to try out with the new "Heat Wave Pen Tool"
 because the stencil is so very fine and detailed. I could not get my gold foil lines quite perfectly.
However,  I think it turned out pretty nicely!

This card is formal and straightforward.
First of all, I applied Distress Oxide over the stencil and once it's dried a bit, I started to trace the lines in between the STAMPtemebr Damask stencil.

After all that, I STILL want to use the "Heat Wave Pen Tool Started Kit. So, I followed the Watercolor Stencil (Altenew, SSS). You now see those fine lines at the bottom of the cards. 

big thanks


Since this post is about Damask...guess what!?
