essential steps to crafting with foil quill


quill foil is in the house

Got my hot little hands on this hot little product.
And it is so amazing!!!

Foil Quill is in studio and already at work making some pretty stuff.
Like this vellum foil 'quilled' card.

Using the Foil Quill All-In-One kit (supply link below), I took to getting all crafty with this fabulous way to add foil sketch touches to any papery kind of project. The boxed kit includes 3 USB heat pens in three different tips: standard, fine and bold. There are 4 cutting machine adapters so you can use any of the popular cutting machines on the market to make this kit work. Included are 3 rolls of Heat Activated Foil in gold, silver and rose gold.  Plus placement tape, heat resistant plate and instructions.

I also have in my possession the Heidi Swapp USB Designer Drive. This baby holds 200 Heidi svg and png files. Like the one I used on this project: Give It All You've Got.

There are plenty of instruction videos out there for you to peruse and discover just how the Foil Quill works. The set up is the same for cutting an image with your die cutting machine. Only you switch to the sketch pen to actually sketch the design over the foil and on to the cardstock.

Watch this video to see what I mean:

And that's how that is done.
The results truly are amazing and absolutely beautiful. You will have to see for yourself. But trust me on this. Beautiful addition to any crafters studio.

I used the Foil Quill-ed vellum over Color Fresh Pattern paper. Washi tape, a Color Fresh Sticker, and a tag was used to craft this card. But the foil graphic is really the star of the show. This machine creates flawless foiled images and phrases + words. It really is a joy to have and use.

Have any questions? Please let me know. There are links below to peruse. And be sure to check out the video to have a good look at the fabulous Foil Quill technique.
