Default Pop Dots Question on Size to Use

Hi All, the title just about explains it. When I look at all the wonderful blogs I wonder, what size pop dots are being used? Thanks for sharing.....

It depends. Pop dots or dimensionals come in different sizes and thickness. (1/8" and 1/16" I think) I use dimensionals from Stampin' Up for the most part, but sometimes I like Pop Dots, which are bigger, round, and thicker, so they raise my image up more. One reason I like dimensionals is that you can stack 2 together to get the "thicker" pop dot look. If a section is tiny, I just cut a piece off and use part of the dimensional. HTH!

I like the foam tape better. You can cut it in any size that you want. I get mine at Target but they have it everywhere. Mine's made by Scotch.

and don't forget you can use the spaces between the dots as a "popper" too! No waste!

A lady who recently attended one of my stamp camps told me she saves the rubber/foam pieces from what she trims off of her SU stamps. she peels off the rubber part and voila... a recycled dimensional! I thought that this was a clever way to recycle! Never heard of that before in my ten years of stamping! Learn something new everyday!

I buy the big roll of foam tape in the paint Department of Wal Mart. It lasts FOREVER and can be cut to any size. I've only had about 2 rolls in ten years.

Yep, I also like foam tape. I have found though here in TX it doesn't hold as well for some reason.

I think it might be the humidity...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Stampin' UP! Dimensionals.. I go through so many of them it isn't funny!
for $3.95 a pack of 300 ~ great deal!

Pam

*ps. sometimes I cut the dimensionals in half and sometimes I double stack them.. and I use all the pieces that go around the piece of paper they come on as well.

I have no idea what you all are talking about! I live in Houston and have no problem with my glue of choice. The name is Super Glue. I find that it holds well and dries quickly!

I am kidding! I love pop dots and have not tried the foam tape. Good tip!

I "LOVE" using Foam Mounting tape from 3M I found two extra large rolls at Sam's Club a while back.

I like it for a couple of reasons: Price, I can cut my own size. Long and Skinny or Short and fat.

Plus if I want to I can double up on the foam to make it thicker.

This is going to sound like a stupid question but what exactly is mounting tape. I have used pop dot and foam squares. Is mounting tape the same thing but in a roll form. Is it what people found and started cutting dots and squares out of?? I need help. I see so many folks saying how they use mounting tape but I don't have a clue. You help is appreciated.
