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:
|Adhesive||What it is||Why we like it|
|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||Touch-and-peel adhesive||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|
|SNAIL Adhesive||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.|
