Stamp-a-stack #8

If you are just getting started with stamping or scrapbooking, here is a big tip from me to you: invest in adhesives. Tapes and glues are cheap and they make a world of difference in creating a card that goes together easily and stays put together!

This card uses glue dots to hold the buttons onto the top of the hats. It is very sticky, it will hold plastic, fabric, paper or anything! And it never lets go!

The ribbon is held on with sticky strip or red-line tape. Again, it is very sticky and holds everything, but it is on a roll so it works great for ribbon. The focal point circle is held onto the card with dimensional adhesive dots. They are foam pieces with adhesive on both sides, just peel from the wax paper and remove the backing and they give your project dimension.

And finally, the hats are held in place with SNAIL or mono-adhesive. Double-stick tape in an easy to use applicator.

Could we have done this with just one kind of adhesive? Maybe, but none of these costs more than about $5 and all of them come with a generous supply, many feet, many dots, many applications. So go ahead, load up your craft room with 4 or 5 kinds of adhesive so you have the right thing to make your card easy!

Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
