Vendor Spotlight & GIVEAWAY: Imaginisce i-rock Tool

Reported by Julie Tiu


Imaginisce
recently announced their newest product, the i-rock, a handheld heat-setting tool that will affix studs, crystals, rhinestones, pearls and mirrors to paper, fabric and more. I was lucky enough to test drive this innovative tool, and found it to be quite useful.

The tool itself comes on its own (gems are separate), and you will need 3 AA batteries. Cordless! Very convenient.

Check it out on the kitchen scale: One-quarter pound. It’s fairly light… and easy to hold.
Okay, we’ve established some stats, but does it work? Yes it does, and pretty well. The instructions are easy to follow and also online, however, I did not like that it made no mention of a little red light that is on the tool. Does the light indicate that the tool is hot and ready to go? No, it doesn’t. The light only turns on twice: 1) when you flip the switch on, and 2) when you depress the button as you hold the tool to affix a gem. I would almost prefer that the light stay on, so you know the tool is hot.

Otherwise, it’s simple to use. Because it is a heat-setting tool, be careful that you don’t lay it too close to plastic or paper while you are working. And keep a small bowl of cold water nearby in case you do accidentally burn yourself, just like when working with a hot glue gun. This is definitely not a child-appropriate tool.

The i-rock has a good variety of accessories, the studs and stencil kits

Plain crystals and Multi-colored crystals in Hot Rocks Compacts

Glam Rocks Rhinestuds in five different styles (picture courtesy of Imaginisce.com)

Along with the i-rock and accessories, I received a fantastic assortment of paper, embellishments and stamps. The style is so reminiscent of childhood birthday parties, but with a contemporary twist.

Let’s get testing

Instructions say to heat the i-rock for at least 15 seconds. I found that was not enough time, more like 30-45 seconds. The stud (first on left) is the quickest setting at 2-3 seconds with a completely heated tool. As you continue right, the glam rocks and smaller crystal adhered quickly also at 4-5 seconds. The larger crystals took as long as 10-15 seconds to adhere.

Sizes range from 2.3 mm to 6 mm.

Love the added dimension and texture!

Projects

The stencil kit in place on a child’s cotton t-shirt

Working with the template is easy!

Rhinestuds fit perfectly in the template

Pulled off the template after marking remaining spots with a pencil. The crystal sizes left in the kit (in that color) were too large for the template.

Finished t-shirt for a special little girl

Backside of the t-shirt: adhesive can melt through, be careful and use a protective layer (brown paper bag, for instance) when applying the studs or crystals on your fabric projects

Store-bought cards embellished with rhinestuds and crystals (Cards by Paula Deen designs)

Cute card with studs (paper by Imaginisce: Animal Crackers)

Stamp by Imaginisce

Hard to imagine just how tiny those studs are!

The paper was cute enough, but the studs just add a little more dimension.

Taking a simple, business card sized foam frame and decorative paper and turn it into something cute… will the Glam Rocks adhere?

“Glam-ming” up my foam frame…

Voila, finished! (flower embellishment by Imaginsce)

Studded magnets “rock” the refrigerator

Pros:
  • Easy to maneuver in small projects
  • No mess
  • Quick heating time
  • Lots of accessories
Cons:
  • Exposed heating tip poses a safety hazard
  • Even though heating time is quick, it didn’t seem as fast as quoted in the instructions
  • Preferred tweezers to the jewel-setter stick that comes with Glam Rocks
MSRP
I never would have thought this tool would be as versatile as it is, and would recommend it for your embellishing needs!

    I think this is such a cool tool and would make applying rhinestones so much easier then trying to get them on by hand! I use gems / rhinestones on probably 90% of my projects. I seem to lose them from the sheet to my page often and I’m constantly adding liquid glue to make them stick to my pages. A lot of ‘pre-adhesive’ gems just aren’t sticky – my case the adhesive stays on the sheet they come on. Not fun!

    i DO use gems and studs on my projects. Right now I’m using the kind with tabs, and a plastic machine that bends the tabs to hold the studs and gems in place. What I hate about my current method is that the things move when I try to clamp the machine down. The tabs also leave little runs or holes in t-shirts sometimes. It can be frustrating for sure.
    Thank you for this giveaway! This is an AWESOME product! I can’t wait to use it!!

    I usually use self adhesive gems on my cards & layouts. The problem with this is that sometimes they also need a tiny drop of glue to adhrere well or they shift on the card while it’s traveling through the mail.

    I would love to have an i-rock tool! I used to gem things alot, and I used a hot glue gun technique that my Nana taught me to use. The problem with that technique is that it is very time consuming, messy, and you can mess it up real easily. Recently, I started back sewing again. I was planning on making some dresses and clothes for my daughter (2 1/2 year old) and adding some gems would be a great idea! And since I also create wood crafts like picture frames and shadow boxes, as well as do some scrapbooking, I feel that a tool like this would come in very handy!

    i would love to win the i-rock! i’ve been looking for it in my local crafting stores and they haven’t had it. it seems as though this method would be more permanent than the self adhesive gems i use currently, which is obviously the goal since we spend so much time on our projects we want them to last and last. Thanks for reviewing it!

    I have a tool like this but the cord is so heavy and it you need to add different tips which hold the gem. If you overheat, the adhesive is too thin and the gem won’t release leaving it stuck in the tool and too hot to remove. This seems like a faster, lighter, easier alternative!

    This is one of my favorite tools!!! I love to add bling but could never get the darned things to hold. The I Rock works great. When I was first learning I did have some gems fall off my pages, but I learned to hold the tool in place just a bit longer. There is also a “feel” to the gem as it becomes permanent (best way I can describe the feel is the gem seems to become “seated” into the paper or fabric).

    I have never tried to apply gems on fabric. I am not satisfied with my current method of putting gems on card. I end up fighting the gems to stay down. Seems like a neat tool and I certainly would love winning it.

    I love Bling on my cards and scrapbook pages. I use adhesive to put down gems but would love to own the I-Rock

    I have been looking at getting a heat tool like this but unsure how good they would be. I currently use glue to adhere my gems to projects and I use a lot of gems but always make a mess with too much glue or the gem ends up upsidedown and then covered in glue.

    I would love to try the I-rock–it would def. rock my world! Currently I use either self-stick gems or Tombow Multi glue to adhere them to paper–I haven’t tried gems on fabric but would like to!

    I do use gems and rhinestones. I usually glue them in place and that tends to be messay and placing individual stones is very tricky. I have done heat setting them on clothing but I used an iron and I think I did not get to heat them evenly because some fell off. I’d love to try this tool and the stencils help give a professional look with the help with placement. Love this!!!

    If the rhinestones would be very well adhered using this tool, I do believe the i-Rock would rock my crafting world =)

    Owning the Imaginisce i-rock tool would TOTALLY rock my world!!! For me, a project is not complete without the bling and I use it on everything! I currently use glue dots to adhere bling and hate that the glue dots always end up showing, or worse—the bling does not always adhere and falls off.

    This Irock would totally “rock my world”!! I have used glue dots and glue to adhere gems to my projects and many times it isn’t a pretty! Usually the gems don’t end up where I want them or too much glue has oozed out from behind them.

    I use rhinestones all the time on my projects…I think it adds so much!! I currently use Glossy accents, but the i-rock would be so much better!!

    This tool would totally rock my world. I currently use glue dots even with gems that come with adhesive. This in my humble opinion looks like it would work best.
    I love my bling!
    Thanks for a shot at winning.
    Good luck everyone.

    I use rhinestones and bling all the time on my cards-this tool would really make it so much easier for me-I usually use glue dots and lots of times the glue dots are too big for the rhinestone and so I am trying to keep it from oozing out of the rhinestone. thanks for the chance to win one!

    The i-rock would definitely rock my world – I currently use self adhesive rhinestones, but that only works on paper projects. The I-rock would be great for clothing, bags etc.

    Yes..the I-Rock tool would rock my (our) world. I have three little girls that love anything craft. The sad thing is, their mom (me) is not the best at adding gems. I’ve tried fabric glue, and the self stick gems…everything always falls off. A big disappointment for my 3 little fashion Divas. So I think this tool would help make mom a really “cool” mom. The girls are sooo ready to bling out everything they can get their hands on.

    It looks like it would be interesting to try. The only thing I wish is that they made it work with things besides their own gems. I use swarovski crystals when I do this, because they are so pretty, and I really don’t like tacky looking “bling”. It would have been nice if they had found a way to make it work with any product that it claims to work for–and not just what Imaginisce puts out. Because I am picky, and while some of the stuff they sell to go with this thing is OK, some of it falls in the tacky category IMHO. And it would have been nice to just have that kind of versatility, too. Like the tool and a special glue for if you wanted to use it on a non-Imaginisce product.
