    I love these stamps and dies. Thanks for breaking down the process for stacking and layer the Hipsters. Question: The thin die adapter, will the Jewelry Studio Thin Die adapter be sufficient or the Sizzix Solo Thin die adapter work for this? I don’t see where to get the one that is shown in your video.

    I’ve had the stamps for a couple of weeks and it is my most used stamp set ever! I just got the dies yesterday and I needed to get a quick card made for my aunts 90th birthday. The hipster set was the perfect combination of sass and respect!
