Do you wonder which adhesive is best? The answer really depends on the job. Whether you’re making cards, DIY boxes, or other paper crafts, Stampin’ Up! has the right adhesive. We have foam adhesive strips and dots, craft glue, double-sided tape, glitter glue, Glue Dots, and more! From tiny embellishments to bulky accents or even whole projects, we’ll help you make it stick. *Be sure to read all the way through to see my SPECIAL OFFER!!!!
If you were making a table, you wouldn’t have just one tool for the job! The same is true in paper crafting. I use different adhesives for different projects. Let’s take a look at the different adhesives and when to use each.
TAPE FOR BASICS
For simple handmade cards, use glue tape like SEAL Adhesive. For 3D paper crafts, try strong adhesive like Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Stampin’ SEAL is an Instant-bond, permanent adhesive.
It holds cardstock, designer series paper, and ribbon. It’s Acid free so it’s safe for scrapbooking too! *Refills available.
Stampin’ SEAL+ is also an Instant-bond, permanent adhesive. It’s strong seal adheres 3D projects and heavier layers securely. Acid free. *Refills available.

Tear & Tape is a strong adhesive with tearable paper backing for easy sticking. Perfect for adhering 3D items and large embellishments. Acid free.
GLUE FOR EMBELLISHMENTS
We have the best craft glue for embellishments. Try our Fine Tip Glue Pen, Mini Glue Dots, multipurpose glue, and glitter glue!
Mini Glue Dots are ideal for use with cardstock and paper, embellishments, ribbon, and detailed die cuts. No fumes, no mess, no drying time.
Multipurpose Liquid Glue is a crafters’ must-have glue! Securely adheres cardstock and paper, embellishments, glitter, 3D objects and accents, and detailed die cuts. Includes narrow tip and broad tip. Strong bond; dries clear. Acid free.
The Fine-Tip Glue Pen is perfect for adhering small embellishments, glitter, and detailed die cuts to projects. Cap includes pin to keep the tip clear and prevent drying. Acid free.
FOAM FOR DIMENSION
Dimensional foam adhesive gives your projects a pop! It’s also great for card making techniques like shaker cards and spinner cards.
Stampin’ Dimensionals (and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals) double-sided adhesive foam dots add depth and dimension. Ideal for use with cardstock and paper, embellishments, and ribbon. Instant bond. Acid free. *Also available in black as a combo pack. The Black Stampin’ Dimensionals work great with darker-colored projects.
Double-sided Foam Adhesive Sheets can be cut with Paper Snips or open dies to fit any project. Ideal for use with cardstock and paper. Acid free.
Foam Adhesive strips are used on shaker cards to add depth and dimension.

Great information. Love your desk caddy too
Super post Genie… Very informative and I think you are so right in saying that you definitely need different adhesives for different jobs… Love that clear tote… Perfect way to see what you have! Have a wonderful day
Hi Jeanie, I love the desk caddy. The adhesive explanation is great. I tried to use my fine tip glue pen yesterday and was so frustrated!! I put a pin in the top and all to get the glue to flow. Well, do you know what I didn’t do??? I didn’t remove the paper label on the container for shipping. Ha. Ha. Ha.
Have a blessed day.
Great information. I love the little tote for all the adhesives. I used to fight with the Tombow “green glue” but I really like it and use it a lot. But I still use the “snail” stuff for basic adherence. Tear and tape is my go to for 3D projects. I use a fair amount of dimensionals too. I just ordered some adhesive sheets last month but have not used them yet. I do like the tote idea for storing all of them. I can pick up the bag and take it to my spot I will be working on a project and not get up and down so much to get something.
