Hello, So i just bought Big Shot die cutting machine 2 hours ago and I got 2 spellbinders. With one of them the Labels Eighteen I have no problem but the other one Heart Circles is just not working for me. When I run it through the machine the cardstock is like stuck to the die and it can't be removed unless I tear up the paper ;(. Please give some advice
PS: I don't know if it is relevant but I am using Bazzill cardstock

I am about to save you tons of frustration, screaming and tears.

two words.

wax paper.

between the die and the paper for the very intricate cuts,,,,,,,many are like that,,,,,the more intricate the harder,,,,,,,

go get yourself a 97 cent roll of wax paper and you will be hooked like the rest of us on nesties LOL

You guys are spot on! Wax paper does the trick! What a helpful community! Also... bonus trick... if you find your rubber mat is sticking... sprinkle it with a bit of baby powder!
