Wink Stick It Alternative

Have stick it. Great adhesive. Now I'm looking for an alternative for die cuts. Specifically, I want to use the alternative just like I do stick it which is to adhere it to my paper before die cutting then peeling off the release paper and adhering it to my project.

So, do any of you have a wonderful alternative that you go to?

I know Elizabeth crafts has a "transparent double-sided tape." But is that comparable to stick it or to Sookwang/scor tape?


BTW, in my experience, Sookwang (same as scor tape) is not a good alternative b/c I find it very hard to die cut. Don't nobody need that kind of frustration!

TIA!

Sizzix double sided adhesive sheets - SU sells them and so do other places that carry Sizzix products. It's not going to be quite as sticky as Scor-tape - it's intended use is with dies.

This double sided adhesive paper by Silhouette is a little cheaper and you get 8 sheets instead of 5. I bought some recently.

I have used Stick It with die cutting. Worked fine. I get frustrated because they don't put any printing on one side, so I know which to remove.
I also use my Xyron with cardstock before die cutting.

I like Stick-It because it is thinner than other double-sided sheets I have tried. The Recollections (Michael's brand) and the Elizabeth Craft wide tape on a roll are REALLY difficult to cut through for intricate dies. They just seem too gummy. Just cut some koi dies with tiny 'scale' detail. Will not type the thoughts/words used when trying to clear all the tiny cutout pieces....

I know this gets a little expensive but I have to balance the frustration against the cost sometimes.

It might help to pop a piece of CS in when die cutting adhesives for that extra little pressure. whether 60 or 110 depends on your machine. Also really really smooth it out/press on the CS-that seems to help me too. The more they are fused the better they cut kind of thing.

I like Elizabeth crafts sheets (not rolls-I have not tried that) a lot for detail dies like thin script words. I have some Therm-o-web in the file from who knows when-my first brands years ago as well as Stick it and something elese I didnt read.

I bought 2" wide dst from Amazon uk. I use that to add sticky to the back of my cardstock. Often the die will cut thru the adhesive but maybe not the backing paper but that's ok.

I too use my Xyron to run my cs through before die cutting. Works great. If you have an intricate die, there is usually some waste, so I save that for when I need little die cuts from that color cs.

Sizzix double sided adhesive sheets is my fav for dies. I bought Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L and it doesn't hold as well. I also use Elizabeth Designs (it's like tear tape/Sookwang) but it's a little thicker than what I want.

A little hint: When I apply the adhesive to white cardstock I use a Sharpie to draw squiggly lines on the backing of the adhesive so I can easily know what side to remove the backing.

Binx,

Just a heads up with my opinion. I have some of these Silhouette sheets (they have yellow backing paper) and I have a hard time die-cutting through it. I recently made a card and ripped almost all of the die-cuts with this adhesive on the back. Again, this is just me, maybe I needed to use another shim (though I did die-cut with the metal shim) or something.


Bugga,
have you tried it yet? Maybe you had better luck than me?

I've only used it once, and the die was a pretty simple shape and not intricate. It worked okay for that. I'll post when I have more results.

I used Scotch Blue painters tape. You do have to stick it to your clothes a bit, to get most of the sticky off. It is cheaper because its not geared to hobbyist. I must say it really doesnt work that well when you paint your walls. haha maybe that why I have so much and use the tape on my dies. Here is their site... ScotchBlue? Painter's Tape

I too bond my card stock with my Xyron Creative Station and then die cut. Frankly I think that's one of the most used pieces of my equipment since I make all my own foiled card stock. I luuuuuv shiny foils. And they look so pretty with lettering dies.

For all my other die cuts I just use a pin point applicator tip on my glue. I really like a little dimension to my cards so I don't get heavy handed with plastering everything down flat.
