How to Foil on 3D Projects with the Freestyle Pen

Autumn is already coming around here. I like to decorate our house for it.

Over the last few days I have foiled many objects with the Foil Quill Pen. And I created my first 3D project without paper. Yes really! Without paper. And I love it.

Foil on your Fall Decor with the Freestyle Pen by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

I really wanted to foil our autumn decor with the Freestyle Foil Quill Pen. So first I bought some pumpkins and painted them. The decoration should be bright and light. After I painted the pumpkin with white acrylic paint, I used the Freestyle Pen (Standard). A few hearts foiled with rose gold on it and it’s done! Totally simple. I was surprised how easy it works.

In autumn I like candles very much as decoration on the table. So I foiled some candles with the Free Style Pen.

At first, I tested on a few old candles. I found out that you should write quickly. Because the hot tip of the pen melts the wax. But with a little practice it is quite simple. First fix the foil with the Washi Tape to the candle. Then, draw your design with the pen.

Excess wax can easily be scraped off with scissors. This way the unattractive areas can be repaired.

Finally I foiled some leaves on acetate with the Freestyle Pen. Then I simply cut them out with scissors.

I decorated the vase with the foil leaves. I scattered the remaining leaves on the table. Maybe I’ll make a garland out of them. My daughter already has an plan.

October Journal Dashboard

Hello and happy Friday! Aly Dosdall back again. My crafting style is usually pretty clean and graphic, but recently I’ve decided to play around with some fun mixed media techniques and broaden my crafty horizons a bit. The new Impressed Stamping Daubers and Dauber Bottle were the perfect way to delve into some mixed media fun, and I used them to create my October journal dasboard. Check it out!

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 3

I include photos in my journal, so I really wanted to highlight these photos of the leaves starting to change in our yard as this is what the beginning of October represents where I live.

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 7

October TN Dashboard by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 5

I used some simple and fun techniques with the stamping daubers to get this colorful look on my dashboard, and I’ll show you how!

I started by cutting out some fall leaf shapes from a scrap of vinyl with my Evolution. I used those as masks on my dashboard, and spread them around the layout in a visual triangle.

step out 1

Then I used the Standard tip Freestyle Pen and some copper Foil Quill foil to write my title. While my handwriting skills are lacking, I feel it’s important to include some of my handwriting in my journal since it’s a part of who I am!

step out 2

Next, I choose some of my favorite fall colors that coordinate with the colors in my photos. I used the daubers to apply the ink to the back of an acrylic stamping block. I filled the dauber bottle with water, and then daubed some water on the block next to the ink, being careful not to get ink on the dauber bottle. I used my stamping dauber to mix the two together to get a watercolor consistency from the ink.

step out 3

Then I applied the ink to my dashboard in horizontal strokes, using my stamping dauber as a brush. I paid extra attention to the fall leaf masks to make sure the ink surrounded the shapes competely.

step out 4

Once the ink dried, I used the Precision Press Pattern Stamps and Stamping Block to stamp in a white color over the ink to add some dimension and layers to the dashboard. Then I removed the vinyl masks, and look how cool it turned out!

step out 5

I added a copper foil outline inside the fall leaf shapes using the metal die I had cut the vinyl with as a template. I first placed the die over the leaf shape and used at piece of washi tape at the very top to secure the die. Then I lifted it up and slid the foil underneath. Then I traced around the inside of the die.

step out 6step out 7

I finished off my dashboard by adding a few embellishments and a tab to mark where October starts in my journal. The Staple Board made it easy to add the tab to my page.

step out 8

I love how my dashboard turned out! Mixed media is a step outside of my comfort zone, but with the Impressed Stamping Daubers is was fun and easy to create this colorful dashboard!

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressed Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced

Hello We R Fans! As the days turn colder, we are starting to have more time to devote to being crafty. Seems like a great time to add some new tools to your collection and to learn a new technique with a trusty We R Memory Keepers tool already in your stash.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create this card, I started by inking a panel of card stock with the new Impressions Dauber set. This set of inking tools is fantastic! Each of the daubers has foam on the end, either in a circle or triangle shape, that is meant for inking. The daubers fit easily on your fingertip, or can be gripped.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Start by swirling your dauber into the ink color of your choosing. When you put your ink-loaded dauber down on paper, it will be very dark and intense. To help keep your ink more even on the paper, start by moving your dauber in a circular motion on a craft mat before applying it to the paper. I am using the American Crafts craft mat here. Continue to add ink and slowly build up your layers of color. Set the background aside to dry as it will need to be dry for the next steps.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The We R Memory Keepers Precision Press is perfect for lining up stamps to create a shadow effect. On this card, I will create the shadow effect with a gold heat embossed image and a plain inked image.

  1. Place your card stock in the Precision Press, securing it into a corner with the magnets
  2. Set the stamp (uninked) down on your card stock where you want the sentiment to appear.
  3. Place the lid of the Precision Press over the top and then press down to pick up the stamp. This will ensure the stamp will be in the exact location after you apply ink to the image.
  4. Ink the image.
  5. Return the lid and stamp down. Push to get even pressure along the image.
  6. Heat set the image.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. Clean and remove the stamp from the lid of the Precision Press.
  2. Return the stamp to the card stock, but instead of lining it up perfectly over the image, set it slightly below and to the right.
  3. Put the lid on again and pick up the stamp.
  4. Ink the image. Replace the lid. Push down.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

  1. When you remove the image because of the surface of the heat embossing, you will need to remove the ink from the surface. I used a cotton swab for a more precise removal.

Cool Stamping Techniques with the Impressesd Stamping Daubers and the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Finish the card base off with floral images stamped in watermark ink. The Mini Precision Press, lid-only, is perfect for stamping images all over. Apply gold dust to the wet ink. Adhere the card stock to a card base.

I am fairly certain that I will be adding a shadow stamp to all my sentiments now! Will you give this a try?

How to Make a Planner Spread with the Foil Quill

Hello everybody ! Soraya here today to share a new tutorial using the amazing Foil Quill tools ! You will be able to create your own spread designs (tabs, titles, boxes and more!) to decorate your journal or planner. Let’s get started !

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory KeepersStep 1 : Prepare your cardstock 

As I wanted to go on a very new spread, I decided to use one of the Foil Quill neutrals smooth papers. I cut 2 parts of 13x22cm then placed them on my Silhouette cutting mat.

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers 

Step 2 : Place the foil 

I used the new Foil Cutting Kit in order to trim the golden foil. This magnetic mat and this circular cutter are truly making a difference by making it easier! The washi tape is now placed all around the foil.

Here’s a tip for you : save the Foil leftovers for your Freestyle Pen crafts!

Step 3 : Create the designs

To create the look of my journal spread, I used some designs in the USB drive of Kelly Creates and Paige Taylor Evans. Those drives are simply awesome : so many designs and words to play with!

How to make a planner spread with the Foil Quill by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So first of all, on my Silhouette Studio, I reproduced the pages so I could easily see where the designs have to be placed. Then I added some tabs and boxes using the drawing options. I placed the title on top and added some flower designs in each box. Before sending it to the cutting machine, I deleted the lines I created for the pages at first.

Now that my designs are set up, let’s launch the Foil process! For my Silhouette I picked the “A” adapter then plugged it in to a battery pack.

Once everything is ready, it’s time to jump into the most exciting moment: the Foil Quill magic!

Step 5 : Coloring delights

We’re almost done with our journal spread! Punch the holes according to your binder or planner sizes with the Crop-A-Dile. Now take some time to add colors and fun to the Foil designs with watercolors. See how the Foil is resisting and showcasing the happy colors.

How to Make a Baby Scrapbook Page with the Foil Quill

Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today, sharing a fun and easy baby layout using my Foil Quill Pen.

Baby Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro featuring the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers

The Foil Quill is perfect to create backgrounds for your layouts and add small accents! You can also use the USB drives to foil hundreds of images.

For this layout, I used the Holiday drive and chose this cute cloud that I thought coordinated perfectly with the designs from the Peek-a-boo You line from Pebbles.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 2

On my Silhouette Studio Software, I ungrouped the elements and erased the raindrops. Next, I hit the “Release Compound Path” button to erase a few faces from the clouds.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 3Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 4

Using the Emboss/Deboss menu,  I created a few patterns to fill my clouds. Simply select the image you want and then the pattern. I choose the line and modified the spacing and angle. Remember to hit the “Release Emboss” otherwise you are not going to be able to sketch it.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 5Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 6

Next, I wrote a sentiment with the Alpha Tool and weld the letters together. I also filled these letters with a pattern, but this time, I used the concentric pattern and adjust the spacing to 0,5.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 8Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 9Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 10

I wanted to cut my phrase so I added a cut line with the “Offset” tool. I did this with some clouds also.

Now it is time to Foil and Cut! If you are just foiling I recommend you use the magnetic mat, it is amazing! I wanted to Foil and Cut so I used my regular mat and secure the foil with the Foil Quill Tape.

When you hit the send button all your images are going to be red, that means that all the lines are going to be cut or sketched by the machine. If you have a machine with two tools you can select all the foil lines with Tool 1 and all the cut lines (the phrase and clouds borders) with Tool 2.

I have a machine with just one tool so I selected the cut lines and hit “No Sketch”. I sent everything to my machine, removed the foil (without unloading the mat) and then selected those 4 border lines and cut them.

Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 12Foil Quill Layout by Eva Pizarro 13

To foil my images I used the 12×12 Foil Sheets in gold and the medium tip. The results were beautiful! Even on textured paper the foil transferred perfectly.

Baby Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro featuring the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers

The foil looks gorgeous when you move the page and I love that with one design you can achieve different looks!

My title also came out great, remember to adjust the spacing of the filling pattern so you don’t have any gaps in the middle!

The Foil Quill is definitely a game changer! Simple, fast and gorgeous results every time! What do you want to foil next?

“Welcome Fall” Sign with the Freestyle Pens

Hello everyone. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a home décor piece created with one of the new We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. These pens are amazing! Easy to use and very versatile. I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about this assignment. I’m not very good at drawing free-hand and my stash of stencils didn’t include a big, cursive quote that I could trace and “color” with foil. Then I came across a cut file I had been saving for a while. I loved the font and the design, and I thought it would look good enlarged to fit a 12×12 cardstock.

Here it is:

"Welcome Fall" sign featuring Foil Quill Freestyle Pen by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I apologize if I don’t have a full, frontal picture of the project. I wanted to show the beautiful gold foil on the orange cardstock, and this was the best way to do it 😉

I started by cutting the design with my electronic die cutting machine. As I mentioned above, I enlarged the quote to fit a 12×12 paper. I then layered the cardstock, a sheet of 12×12 gold foil, and my cut file on top.

"Welcome Fall" sign featuring Foil Quill Freestyle Pen by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I secured the bottom paper to my work table with the Foil Quill Placement Tape and did the same with the cut file. You want to make sure there is no shifting, so to obtain a clean design.

I used the Foil Quill Freestyle Bold Tip Pen, as the negative space of the cut file was pretty big – another option would be the Calligraphy Tip Pen; it has a wide tip and can help cut down on time.

"Welcome Fall" sign featuring Foil Quill Freestyle Pen by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

For the little pieces inside the letters, I just kept them in place with my fingers and went around them with the pen. This is what made the process a bit long, but it was totally worth it in the end.

"Welcome Fall" sign featuring Foil Quill Freestyle Pen by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

Once I was done with the quote, I picked a rose gold colored foil sheet from the Foil Quill Flamingo assorted pack and, using the same cut file, I added more shiny dots around the words.

I finished my project with lots of flowers from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection and pom pom ribbon along the top and bottom edges of the paper.

I hope this has given you some more ideas on how to use the amazing Foil Quill Freestyle Pens. Thank you for stopping by.

Fall Cider Bar with the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens

Hey guys, Aly Dosdall here. Fall is on the way, and before you know it, it will be sweater weather! One of my favorite fall traditions is apple cider. I have a hot cup almost every night during the cold weather (sugar free, of course). I’m so inpsired by my love for cider, that I decided to create this fun idea for a fall get-together–an apple cider bar!

Apple Cider Bar with the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quil Freestyle Pens and the DCWV Inc Cider Woods paper stack. Supplies for this project are available at Joann Stores.

Throw this together after an evening at the corn maze or pumpkin patch, and enjoy some yummy warm drinks and fall snacks! This project features the Foil Quill Freestyle Pens, and I love the sparkle the foil adds to this pretty fall scene.

For the fall leaf backdrop, I cut out some leaf shapes with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I used some shapes from the Foil Quill USB Drives, and others from my personal library of SVG files.

The focal piece of this party decor is the banner, which I created with the Banner Punch Board, some black smooth cardstock, the Alphabet Punch Board and papers from the DCWV Inc Cider Woods stack, available at Joann Stores. To add foil to the banner, I used a metal magnetic ruler, magnetic mat, and the Calligraphy Tip Freestyle Pen to get the wide lines.

I also made some bottle tags for the apple cider! I love the copper foil with the cider–it looks so warm and inviting.

I handwrote these tags, and then punched them out with the bracket Clear Cut Punch. If you have great handwriting, it looks pretty cool, but even if you don’t love your handwriting, it’s a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your projects–your own writing in foil! So cool!

IMG_0264

Here’s how I made the bottle tags–super easy! I cut 3×7 inch blocks of patterned paper, rounded the corners with the 3 Way Corner Rounder, scored them in half, and then punched a 2 inch hole in the center of one half. (You can save the leftover 2 inch circles for another project.)

To make the cinnamon streusel muffin topper I used one of the Heatwave Stencils, and punched the letters out with the Tag Clear Cut Punch.

Again, I used the Calligraphy Tip Pen to fill in the letters from my Heatwave Stencil. This would also make a great cake or cupcake topper!

Then I made some embellishments for the cups holding the cider mix-ins: one cup of caramels (drop them in and let them melt, then stir) and one cup of cinnamon sticks (place them in and stir, then let them sit).

The technique for making these is one of my favorites to use with the Freestyle Pens! I printed the fall images on thin copy paper and then placed the printed images over the foil, which was over my cardstock. The foil transfers beautifully even with the copy paper on top. You can also use vellum or tracing paper. Then I punched out the foiled designs.

The images I used are PNG files from the Holiday Foil Quill USB Drive. Each USB drive has both SVG and PNG files, and you can open the PNG files in a word document and print them for tracing!

I love how the Freestyle Pens add such a special touch to my fall project. I can’t wait to use them for holiday projects too!
