Stamping 101 - Adhering Your Card Stock Layers

I just want to go over some adhesive options for all your paper crafting needs. Stampin' Up! offers many different types of adhesives for many different types of projects. Here is a quick description of each:

Snail Adhesive

This Permanent Adhesive applies a controlled amount directly to your project, so your hands and work area never get sticky. Comes with 472” of adhesive and is refillable. Great for cards, scrapbooks, or other art projects.

Anywhere Glue Stick

This glue stick is a great economical choice for scrapbooking and card making. It's acid free, so it's safe to use on scrapbook pages. It’s also safe and easy for kids to use. The rectangular design makes those hard-to-reach areas reachable. Perfect for adhering card stock and Designer Series Paper to our chipboard. Odorless and permanent, 2 per package.

Two Way Glue Pen

Two-Way Glue is versatile and provides a permanent or temporary bond. It's perfect for masking or working with stencils! The chisel tip makes it easy to get just the right amount of glue for adding glitter. Let the glue dry after you’ve applied it (it will become clear), and it will work just like a sticky note.


Scrapbookers love this adhesive! You can reposition pictures and artwork without causing damage. The handy dispenser is so easy to use. You can also use Dotto to create a temporary mask. There is 49 feet of temporary, self-adhesive dots on paper backing. Convenient dispenser rolls dots from paper backing onto card stock, photograph, or accent Adhesive is solvent free and acid free. Refillable.

                                              Mini Glue Dots

Our Mini Glue Dots are super sticky, adhesive dots for use on 3-D accents (buttons, flowers, ribbon) for cards, scrapbook pages, and other projects. This fast, clean adhesive is safe for kids, too. No fumes, no mess, and no drying time required!

There is approximately 300 dots per roll; each dot approx 3/16" in diameter Adheres to paper, fabric, wood, foam, plastic, & more!

Crystal Effects

Embellish any image without embossing using Crystal Effects. It gives a high-gloss finish to any image. 2oz bottle Creates amazing 3-D effects, and applicator tip gives great control. Water based for quick and easy cleanup. Dries completely within an hour depending on how thick it is applied.

                                           Stampin Dimensionals

Stampin’ Dimensionals are the easiest way to give your projects an instant 3-D look. Just stamp an image, trim around it, and then use a Stampin’ Dimensional to attach it to your project. They are also great for making greetings stand out and attaching 3-D objects such as buttons, tags and bows. There are 300, 1/16" double-sided, self-adhesive foam mounts. Use multiple Stampin’ Dimensionals for multilevel projects or added height. Great for layering!

Sticky Pages

If you like Sticky Strip, you’ll love Sticky Pages! Peel off the liner and sprinkle with beads or our chunky or fine glitters to personalize your projects, gifts, or work space. Two 12" x 12" blank sticky sheets per package. Use the sheets with your Big Shot machine to create custom shapes.

Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive

The Multi Purpose Adhesive has a dual tip for placing adhesive exactly where you want it. Place an exact small amount using the small tip, or spread the adhesive over a larger area using the wide tip. Latex rubber acrylic resin adhesive is acid free. Adhesive can be permanent or temporary depending on how it is applied. Easily adheres card stock & Designer Series Paper to chipboard.

Sticky Strip

This Acid Free super-strong adhesive will hold together a box or pouch like a dream! It won’t lift, curl, distort, warp, or wrinkle. You can also use it to adhere other craft-related embellishments, such as beads, glitter, or embossing powder. ¼” wide, 10 yards Double-sided, pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive. Comes in a zippered plastic bag for convenient storage.

Heat & Stick Powder

Most people try to use glue to add glitter to a project, but it’s difficult to get a nice, even look especially on a detailed image. The Heat & Stick Powder fixes that problem perfectly. Now it’s so simple to get glitter to spread evenly across an image (you have to use with heat gun). Heats to a sticky surface to hold glitter. Use with Craft Stampin’ Pads or VersaMark ink, 1/2 oz.
