Adhesive: What to use when?

Customer Loyalty Program Plus 

and

Stampin Up Bonus Days work perfect together!

Making cards and scrapbook pages are more fun when you use the right adhesive. Nothing is more embarrassing than to have your card arrive in pieces; or be showing off your recent scrapbook and the pages fall apart. Stampin Up is taking the guess work out of what adhesive to use and when. In are recent annual catalog you will find the follow chart:
Let's talk about a few important points when using these adhesives. 

Fast Fuse Adhesive

  • Fast Fuse Adhesive is a roll on adhesive. 

  • It works best on card stock and paper, large embellishment, ribbon and 3d objects and accents.   

  • The trick to using fast fuse adhesive is to snap it before picking it up off your paper. A simple flick of the wrist will allow you to pick up you adhesive without spreading adhesive all over your creation. 

  • Refills are available, so there is no reason to purchase the complete case and adhesive. 

  • Fast Fuse Adhesive is a stronger hold than SNAIL adhesive.

SAIL Adhesive 

  • It works best on card stock and paper, large embellishment, ribbon and 3d objects and accents.  

  • Refills are available, so there is no reason to purchase the complete case and adhesive.

    Fine Tip Glue      

    • It works best on small areas and detail die cuts. 

    • Easy to appl

    • Great for glitter also. 

    • Fine Tip Glue dries fast and needs to be stored correctly. The inside of the cap has a pin which needs to be replaced after each use. If the tip should clot, take it apart and clean with warm water. Allow to dry then assemble and close properly. 

    Multipurpose Liquid Glue 

    •  Multipurpose liquid glue is my favorite. It works well on anything except ribbon. 

    • What I like the best is it gives me room to position my project with only a tiny drop. You do not need to use much, a tiny drop is enough. 

    • It dries clear. 

    • A $4 bottles will last a long time; making it inexpensive to use.

    Tear & Tape adhesive

     

    • Is another favorite; it works well on anything except detail and small places. 

    • Great to use on books and fancy fold cards.

    • This is my go to adhesive for ribbon. Keeps ribbon tight to the page without makes. 

    Stampin Up Dimensionals    

    • Stampin Up dimensional add a nice pop to cards and scrapbook pages. They are just the right size. 

    • Easy to remove the paper off either side. 

    Foam Adhesive Strips

    • Foam adhesive strips are nice to use when making a shaker card. 

    •  Also great to us to add pop to a large area.

    Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets    

    • Multipupose adhesive sheets are the newest addition to Stampin Up collection of adhesives

    • Perfect to use anytime you are going to be placing a detail die cut to any card or pa

    • It comes in a 6x12 sheet, making it easy to cut to match the size of your paper. I do not recommend having any exposed area when you place it in your sandwich for die cutting. 

    • Be sure to peel off the area mark with "peel here" first. This will leave you with a easy sheet to peal off the second part. 

    • Use a bone folder to put large areas down. This is prevent bubbling. 

    I hope this information helps you choice the right adhesive for all your paper crafting projects. Please feel free to comment me with any questions you may have regarding Stampin Up products.
