  1. I am learning to like punches better for workshops or events and I was many, many hours die cutting for last month’s card buffet!! Love the dies for detailed images.

  2. My all time favorite item is the owl punch .but really enjoyed the window die with all the small stamps that go so well with it. so versatile.

  3. congratulations Roxanne and that is a tough question. I love my dies but punches are great for a quick and handy cut.

  4. My preference is punches. Although they take up a lot more room, they are much quicker to use than dies. But I love my dies too for other reasons!

  5. I dont have a preference if I had to chose I would pick punches because there is so many punch art items and they are fun to make

  6. It depends on the amount of cards I’m doing. Love the details of the dies, but time and many prefer punches. Thanks for a chance to win the blog candy. Always wanted that stamp set.

  7. I much prefer the punches as they are quicker to use, however, if I have any dies to cut, my hubby will do the cutting for me! LOL He prefers the dies

  8. Amy, love love love the snowflake in this set! Sure would love to make some Christmas gifts and cards with this set!

  9. Your blog candy for today is one of my favorites, too. And I prefer punches. Dies are very helpful, but I like a single punch in hand.

  10. I do like the dies, but if making a number of card, punches will always be preferable because they are easier and faster to use.

  11. Love, love, love punches! The versatility of using a punch for quick and easy card making can’t be beat. However, I do feel that we have many more choices in the new dies so lately I have been using many, many, more dies. The new ones are outstanding!

  12. I love the punches because they are quick to use. But I also really like the dies because of the intricate pieces you get after you run them through your Big Shot.

  13. I really love the punches because they are so fast to get what you need. But I also like the dies because they have such detailed touches.

  14. I love the new dies but I prefer to use the punches because they are easier to grab, punch and move on to building the card!

  15. I am torn between the punches &dies/framelits. Punches are quick and require nothing more, but the dies/framelits are so much easier to store and do more intricate cutting. Thanks for sharing so many of your beautiful creations.

  16. I have a lot of punches but I LOVE dies. they are easier to store and a little more flexible when cuting out sentiments and images. thanks for everything you share on your blog and for the chance to win this wonderful set.

  17. Thanks for the opportunity to celebrate your anniversary with you ! I love my dies – but when making bulk cards (like at Christmas), punches go quicker . . .

  18. Hi Amy ,,,,I leave in the northern part off Maine. Love your cards …..I love to use dies . Keep up the good work…….charlene

  19. It is really a toss up.Today it would be dies. Dies are great, no fussy cutting, easier to store but not as convenient (I don’t have a designated craft room).

  20. Love your Blog! I love the dies because you are not restricted by them except for the requirement of a machine.

  21. I love both…….but punches are sooo quick. Happy 4th blogaversary Amy!!!!
    thanks for sharing and for all of your hard work.

  22. I prefer punches… mainly because I don’t want to scar, mark, scratch, (etc.) my Big Shot plates (I know, I know, I could buy another set!! I guess I’m just weird that way!)
