I oredered some Dew Drops and am ready to use them?

Sharon, you can use Mini Glue Dots, or something like Diamond Glaze/SU! Crystal Effects/3D Crystal Lacquer, etc.--any of the clear dimensional adhesive/glazes work well for these.

HTH,

I use Crystal Effects. But you only need a *DROP*!

Thanks so much!

I think I'll get some mini glue dots as I am pretty spastic when it comes to using "just of drop" of anything!

I've been using Crystal Effects but I agree with the others who've said "just a drop". I find that it's hard to get just the right amount and not have it ooze out when the dew drop is put on top. Also, I find it a bit tough to get them lined up just right. I have a couple rough looking spots on one of my first cards - almost worth testing the gluing process on a piece of cardstock and not on a finished (or nearly finished) card.

Mono multi here.
It's a bit easier to control than the CE, and it dries perfectly clear, if you get a smudge, you can remove it with the SU glue remover (which looks like and eraser and I *heart* it cuz it works) and it'll leave no mark behind! {{ask me how I know}}

I used The Ulimate and it worked great. And because it's thick, it's easy to control how much you put on (I used a toothpick). If you happen to get a little too much, it dries clear.

I only tried it once, I used ZipDry and boy did I get too much.

I can see putting the toothpick into the glue and applying a *SMALL* dab to the back of the Dew Drop.....

I tried a mini glue dot on a clear...it showed and kinda wiggled. I'll go back to Suze Glue or Tombow green top.

Scotch quick dry or whatever it is called. It is perfect in that if there is a wee bit too much glue it dries clear. I believe this product is pretty much the same as the mono multi. I also use a toothpick to apply the glue to the spot on the card to which I want to adhere the drop and tweezers to place the drop on the card. Believe me, those suckers will not be coming off.
I do not like any drops/crystals, etc that have that self adhesive glue dots on them in that it is too easy to touch the adhesive and the item loses it tackiness and can come off.
