    I got some a while back and have used them successfully , the dots you leave behind wherever you do your glueing are something I hadn’t thought of.

    Invested in the dotty tape pens. They seem to work well but you have to be careful if the die cut is very intricate as you can damage it if you're a bit heavy handed. I use a spare piece of scrap paper underneath to catch the dots not being transferred to the die cut. Don't know how long they will stay on the card but seem to stick well so far. Saves a lot of time trying to apply the glue in other ways.

    I use
    Creative expressions sticky specs
    I got the pack of 5 a5 sheets when on offer although I canít remember where from
    They are good for fancy die cuts you place the cut item face up on the sticky sheet making sure you use a clean
    Sheet of Grease proof paper over the die cut to rub it
    It does come with a plastic sheet to do that but the dots tend to stick to it and then transfer to the right size of the die cut and your fingers
    You have a very short time to reposition before itís permanent
