Which adhesive should you use?

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:

AdhesiveWhat it isWhy we like it
Fast FuseSuper strong double-sided tapeSecures even heavy layers of cardstock, paper and accents. It holds strong and lasts long.
Fine-Tip Glue PenLiquid glue with a pin in the cap to keep the tip clear and flowingThe thin stream of glue is great for a strong hold on tiny accents.
Foam Adhesive Strips22.9 cm long strips of double- sided adhesive foamPerfect for shaker cards or spinner cards.
Trim to the length you need.
Mini Glue DotsIndividual dots of adhesiveSticky dots of glue provide strong hold for small elements.
Multipurpose Adhesive SheetsTouch-and-peel adhesivePress an element such as a die cut onto a sheet, pull it up and adhere.
Multipurpose Liquid GlueLiquid glue in a dual-tipped bottle: narrow and broad tipsHolds cardstock, large embellishments, small embellishments and glitter
SNAIL AdhesiveDouble-sided tape in small caseLightweight and portable adhesive can go with you anywhere.
Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini
Stampin’ Dimensionals
Double-sided adhesive foam dotsAdd instant depth. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on smaller pieces.
Tear & Tape AdhesiveEasy-to-tear double-sided tapeNo 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
