    Tears when I try to remove it.

    This is such a beautiful die, it's a shame that the detail is so fine that you can't remove the cut intact. I always use waxed paper between the die and cardstock, but that didn't help here. I glued the pieces of my final attempt back together and used it on a page, but I doubt that I'll try it again. Does anyone have another solution?

    This item is to detailed. It didn't matter what weight paper I tried. The paper would rip. I WOULD NOT recommend this die cut tp anyone.

  • Wonderful die but you must follow certain steps to obtain an intact diecut


    By: angelhelp

    I love this die and all "nature" dies, however the resulting diecut can be tricky to remove. After ruining a bunch of cardstock and paper in repeated attempts, here's what I learned:

    1. Obtain UNSCENTED dryer sheets. Scented ones will gum up the die and the paper or cardstock.

    2. Unfold 4 dryer sheets and stack them, one atop the next.

    3. Place the die onto the dryer sheets and run through your BigShot or other diecutting machine, as if you were intentionally diecutting the dryer sheets. This action lubricates the die.

    4. Next, run JUST the die and cardstock/paper through the machine, NO dryer sheets. The cardstock/paper WILL likely stick to the die. Have no fear...

    5. Place the die WITH ITS STUCK CARDSTOCK/PAPER onto the dryer sheet stack (you can reuse that same stack of 4 sheets for MANY diecuts) and run this through the machine.

    6. If you're worried, go back and forth an extra time. Now gently remove your intact (yes, it will almost certainly be intact!) diecut.

    7. To make more with the same die, you don't need to relubricate it until you've made a half-dozen or so diecuts. You ABSOLUTELY must not skip any other step in the sequence, though.

    The youtube video link where I learned this technique is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQx_rKUwjsQ She is Deb Valder and will answer any emails you send (link comes with the video) if you still have problems. I too was in despair with this die and other beautiful detailed dies, but this technique REALLY works as long as you follow each step and take no shortcuts. The results are well worth the effort!

    I have been unable to get this die to cut a clean usable product. Any suggestions?   By: User (07-Jul-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • HI, since you don't not say what machine you are using, here is some general info that may help you:

      "This die is very intricate so we recommend placement of the die on the edge of the plating, left or right. 65# or less weight for the paper, smooth cardstock only and wax paper is a must between the die and media that is being cut. After the first feed, if there is any incomplete cut, move the die on the plating to place the uncut area where the machine provides the needed pressure to complete the cut…. Usually where it cut on the first feed. It may take a couple of feeds with movement but never more than three if the customers uses the best pressure of their machine. If a spot is not cut completely a shim placed just at that spot can help as well." - Spellbinders Customer Service By: Janna L (07-Jul-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!
