Default Glue for punched flowers/Primas?

I see alot of very lovely cards w/ lots and lots of layered punched flowers and leaves and more flowers on them on top of each other.. What is the best way to attach all those so they don't come off easily? I know brads will keep them there but I can't put brads in all or I'll go crazy in a hurry.

Right now I use the Zig two-way glue but I don't trust it too much to keep too many layers of flowers together and safely on the card.

Hi there. I've had great results with both Ranger Glossy Accents and with Crafter's Pick glue. HTH.........

I use Crystal Effects. I think it's the same stuff as Ranger's Glossy Accents?

I use a product called Gloo and is sold at scrapbook.com if that's any help. I love the stuff.

I just use my ATG. Not kidding. With paper flowers, any strong dry adhesive works quite well. Sometimes I'll also use Zip Dry, especially if the flowers are not paper.

I use glue dots for layering the flowers and I use crystal effects for adding a dew drop or other embelishment for the flower center.

I use a brad to create multilayered flowers, especially the ones made from crumpled paper because it allows me to arrange the layers nicely, then tuck a tiny drop of glue between the layers. I adhere it to the card with Beacon's 3 in 1 glue. With groups of flowers and leaves, I use beacons for some and various layers of glue dots for others to vary the heights make it look more realistic. Sometimes I glue a pearl or a rhinestone to the center after.
