I bought the stamps set as soon as it came out and absolutely love the Crazy Birds. I did find however that I was going cross eyed trying to cut them out and inevitably chopped off a leg in the process! I ordered the dies as soon as I saw them on here and have been playing with them. They cut beautifully, are easy to line up (stamp your bird put the die over, line it up using a couple of reference points and make sure you cannot see any of the edge of the stamped image) and the results are excellent. I didn't realise just how detailed the dies are, even cutting tiny areas out which I wouldn't even attempt with a knife. If you have the stamps buy these, if you don't have the stamps, buy both!
