do you mean on paper?  martha stewart has a good clear all purpose gel adhesive that i used for all my many many crystals.  i just put a small dot on, pressed the stone on the glue, and then wiped off the excess. it dries clear...

i bought a rhinestone bedazzler tool at joanns for about $10. 


you have to use the "hot fix" rhinestones that have the glue already on the back.

Where can I find pretty blue rhinestones?  All I can ever find is clear and pink...

do they have pre-formed rhinestone letters?  I really like how Soontobeamiller did her something blue on her shoes but I'm not sure if I have the patience for that particular DIY project!

ON paper I use just regular clear drying craft glue. I use gem tack on everything else. It works great!
