One size fits all is a great concept for things like elastic belts, but not so much for adhesives. There’s a reason Stampin’ Up! offers nine different adhesives. Each adhesive has its own merits and everyone has their favourites.
Here’s a brief rundown of each adhesive:
What it is
Why we like it
Super strong double-sided tape
Secures even heavy layers of cardstock, paper and accents. It holds strong and lasts long.
Fine-Tip Glue Pen
Liquid glue with a pin in the cap to keep the tip clear and flowing
The thin stream of glue is great for a strong hold on tiny accents.
Foam Adhesive Strips
22.9 cm long strips of double- sided adhesive foam
Perfect for shaker cards or spinner cards.
Trim to the length you need.
Mini Glue Dots
Individual dots of adhesive
Sticky dots of glue provide strong hold for small elements.
Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
Press an element such as a die cut onto a sheet, pull it up and adhere.
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Liquid glue in a dual-tipped bottle: narrow and broad tips
Holds cardstock, large embellishments, small embellishments and glitter
Double-sided tape in small case
Lightweight and portable adhesive can go with you anywhere.
Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini
Double-sided adhesive foam dots
Add instant depth. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on smaller pieces.
Tear & Tape Adhesive
Easy-to-tear double-sided tape
No measuring or cutting—just stick it to your project, then tear.
Tip: See the chart on p. 203 of the Annual Catalogue for more suggested uses for each adhesive
