Default 3-dimensional embellishments?

Many of the cards that I have received lately from family and friends seem to have 3-d embellishments on them. I love the look but I'm uncertain as to whether or not there are specific sticker lines or product lines that feature such things. I know I have gotten some stickers like that in the scrapping kits I purchased from Paperwishes but I would like to have the same thing to use on cards as well. Any suggestions?

Also, do you think it's feasible and easy to stamp images and then cut them out to achieve the same effect? If so, what are some stamp sets might work out well for this purpose?

Thanks so much!

Many of the stamp sets in the SU catalog are sized to fit certain punches. It's really easy to stamp in any color and then punch out the embellishment. Just use a pop up dot and you have a very economical 3-D embellishment. I don't have my catalog with me right now, so I'm sorry I can't give specific set info.

I also often trim stamped images by hand and adhere them to cards with dimensionals to add the 3-d effect. You can do this with virtually any stamp set and the best part is you can do it over and over again -- you're not limited to a sheet of stickers that may only have 3 or 4 images that you really like. Not that stickers are bad (I've been known to use some myself) but stamps give you the option of making many copies of the same project (like christmas card or party invite) without having to buy more stickers.
