How to Match Craft Punches & Dies With Their Corresponding Stamp Set –Oh, and embossing folder too!

I don’t think I am the only one who struggles trying to remember if a stamp set has a matching die, punch, or embossing folder. Perhaps you are in the same boat as me. I had to make a change to my organization system and came up with an idea that I am LOVING so far and I am going to share my tip in today’s Tuesday Tip video.

Did you enjoy learning this little tip to match craft punches & dies and embossing folders? Will you be trying this? Let me know!

To start the process to match craft punches & dies I found it easiest to start at the front of the catalog and work my way through, adding a D (die), P (punch), or EF (embossing folder) to the spine of my stamp set. WOW did this tip make my life easier and I am so glad I took the time to do this.

If you don’t have an alphabet stamp set, you can just write the letters with a Sharpie but I like everything to be uniform (shout out to my OCD friends and those who like things uniform).


Here is the stamp set and ink I used. Remember, you can use either the Black Memento Ink or the StazOn ink, whichever you have.

The Posted for You stamp set and punch were at the top of my wish list when I saw the new annual catalog. You can see it on page 81. I guess I have always had a love of the postage stamp look and the stamps are SO sweet! I have 3 cards I am going to share with you on my YouTube Live on Thursday.
