Hello everyone!! It’s Shari Carroll here to give you some helpful information about adhesives. I’m sure it’s super challenging to know what glues or tapes work best for cards and projects. I hope to give you some tips on which ones you’ll need for the right job!
Tape and Tape Runners
Adding dimension with Foam Dots and Foam Tape
3M Foam Tape Roll: Cut the lengths needed for projects, this tape is great for creating shaker cards and lifting larger panels.
Glue Sticks I like glue sticks for a few reasons. I use them for collaging papers together. They are dryer than fluid glues so there is less warping. I also like to use them for applying foil to my projects.
Ranger Mini Collage Glue Stick: Small size great for small areas.
Tonic Funky Glue Stick: This starts out purple and dries clear. It’s easy to see where you’ve applied your glue.
Zig 2 Way Glue Pen: This is a ball point pen tip that is great for applying glue to very detailed piece such as die cut words.
Tonic Medium Nuvo Glue Pen: This is a soft chisel tip pen that delivers glue as you draw.
Tonic Large Nuvo Glue Pen: Also a chisel tip but larger for bigger areas.
Simon Craft Tacky Glue: This is a great all purpose glue. Use it for your sequins, beads, metal pieces and more. It has a fine tip point which can be trimmed down to suit your needs. The finish is between matte and glossy
Funky Glue Pen: This is a white craft glue which also has a fine tip for dispensing the glue. This had a finish between matte and glossy.
Tonic Deluxe Nuvo Glue: This is also a white glue with a fine detail applicator tip and dries to a clear finish.
Multi Matte Medium: This is a strong hold acrylic adhesive that dries to a nice matte finish. This can be used for image transfers and mixed medium projects.
Glossy Accents: A strong hold with a shiny glossy finish. You can use this to create a shine on your projects.
I have filmed a video showing some of these items. You can view it below or on our YouTube Channel HERE.
