When you see the word “Bundle” in the Stampin’ Up! catalog or online, do you know that means Bundle and Save? As the creative teams at Stampin’ Up! design new stamp sets, they sometimes create punches or dies to coordinate with images in that set. These punches and dies make the crafting process easier because no “fussy cutting” is needed to feature an image in a project! Each have their advantages.
Punches are handy because you can stamp an image multiple times and then quickly punch them out and they are less expensive than dies. However, punches are limited to non-intricate designs which follow the outline of an image. Pages 168-169 of the 2020 Annual Catalog list all the current punch bundles available. Builder punches are punches that punch out all the elements of the design with one punch. The Whale Done Bundle on page 169 is an excellent example of a Builder Punch
Dies usually come as a set and coordinate with multiple images in a stamp set. They can achieve intricate and delicate designs that are not possible with fussy cutting. In order to use dies, you will need a Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine. Pages 173-179 of the 2020 Annual Catalog list all current die bundles available.
The absolute best part about Punch or Die Bundles is the savings! When you purchase a stamp set and its coordinating punch or die, you save 10% off the cost of buying the two products separately.
