The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

Computers are a lifeline for keeping us connected to friends, family, work, and school. In times like these, encouraging our remote-schooling kiddos, teacher friends, and parent peers is more important than ever, and this die set is the perfect choice for making the technology an integral part of the design. Pull together a desktop computer in the time it takes to connect to your next Zoom meeting thanks to this smart design featuring a two-piece screen, monitor stand, and speech bubbles to connect a variety of participants. This Die-namics works alone or in conjunction with products in your stash but is an essential complement to the Virtually the Best stamp set.
