Yes please let me know! My girlfriend has the same problem so I'm curious to see how yours work.

Because of how the Fishtail Flags "stack" inside one another, they have the "ledge" next to the blade. This allows us to squeeze more shapes in the same amount of space that would have yielded only one die. The "crease" is normal. If you look at the DT samples, you'll see the same thing. It is a light embossed effect when cutting, or you can deepen the impression with an embossing mat, but that is how the dies work. It's not a defect.

I just wanted to add that this is true of all STAX within the Die-namics line. Hope that helps.

I am assuming those plastic things behind the dies are supposed to be removed - that they are just there fore shipping and packing purposes.

You can remove them if you'd like to. The die will work either way.

Thanks. I removed them. I just finished cleaning the dies from the adhesive remains. Now to cut.

Jody posted after your inquiry and so now I am not sure if you and she are talking about the same thing when you mentioned "creasing." I am not sure if your "crease" is the same as when she mentions "light embossed effect" so I will try to explain what happened to me.

First I cut with the dies as I received them (plastic things on). I put the flat side in my Cuttlebug first with fishtail at the end. What I got was the fishtail that was scrunched up at the points. This was not the "light embossed effect." I'm not sure if my "scrunched" up is same as your "crease." I didn't like the plastics on the dies as they were ditry and scratched up. I've never purchased any dies with the plastic on them so I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with them so I posted and Jody said I can leave them on or take them off. I removed them and cleaned them with GOO-GONE.

After they were all cleaned and dried I played some more with the dies. When I ran the dies through I rolled the fishtail side first with the flat end last. This worked well and the fishtails were no longer "scrunched" up. So all is good for me. When I want the embossing I'll run it through with the appropriate pads.

I really like these fishtails.

Yes my problem is similar! I expected the light embossing effect I love that on all MFT dies, my creasing sounds similar to your scrunching! I will try cleaning them today, ive run them through the Cuttlebug in every direction I can think of and so far nothing works. I'll clean them today and report back - thanks ladies!

I re-read my post and see where I wasn't clear. I ended up removing and discarding the plastics. Then I cleaned the dies with GOO-GONE because it had all that adhesive stuff on the dies. I put the GOO-GONE on the die and let it dissolve the adhesive a bit and then just wiped the dies GENTLY with a paper towel. Then I washed off the GOO-GONE.

I'm rather new to MFT dies and so I am not sure what the warranty covers. Jody told me it is okay to remove the plastics. Please check with MFT to see what the warranty covers.

Okay time for my question...

I adore my dienamics. I love the flower (prima donna, fringed per..) but I also have the fancy flourish, leafy flourish and some others...BUT for some reason, the flower ones are the only ones which cut clean through my cardstock. I am having serious issues getting the flourishes to make clean cuts--especially in cardstock.

I have a Cuttlebug--finances will not allow me to change so that's not an option right now. I just replaced my B plates last week. Which improved the cuts, but I still have to finish them with my Xacto knife...which means I end up ruining them since they are such thin designs.

Suggestions? I keep reading about a thin embossing pad--is this sold separately at MFT? And would it make the difference? I have tried thin pieces of cardstock as an added shim and frankly it doesn't do squat to make it cut better.

for the record I'm using PTI and SU cardstock...and it isn't cutting through either of them. Unless I use the flower dies. Weird.

MFT will stand behind the products if they are defective. Removing the plastic or snapping the dies apart (for the sets that are hooked together with thin metal) dies not void the warranty.

I do the exact same thing you listed above.

It has to do with the intricate style of the dies and there not being enough pressure with the current stack you are using. These dies cut through pressure and with flower shapes that have less "blade" throughout them, the pressure is enough to cut those more easily. This is what you need: Large Metal Adapter Plate for Die-namics

It's out of stock right now, but it was actually designed with the Cuttlebug in mind. It is a thin metal shim that really helps with cutting intricate dies. You can use it with ANY die to create more pressure, but I automatically grab it if I am going to cut a flourish, snowflake, doily, etc... anything with a lot of detail. It really helps those cut cleanly, the "negative" pieces pop out more easily, and you'll get a cleaner cut. I use a Vagabond, but still love using the metal shim for those types of dies. I hope that helps.

Okay. I got the thin metal adapter...

Does the sandwhich for a CUTTLEBUG using it go:

A
B
Paper
Die
Metal Plate (against negative side of die)
C

Because I tried that with my fancy flourish die and it did better but STILL didn't cut all the way through my cardstock.

I'm sure you are all going to tell me to chuck the Cuttlebug, but I don't have the funds to do that and probably won't for quite awhile...so I really really really need to make this work! I love my MFT dies and want to be able to use them. I hate not using them right now.

Can anyone help?

Sounds right to me. Make sure the blade side of the die is pointing away from the metal plate. (flat side of die directly on metal plate). Looks like you cut with the blade up. I always did it down. I know the die cutting machine suggests the other way but I never liked doing it that way.

How old is your CB? Those things get looser over time and CB has low pressure to begins with (compared to the other machines).

I would suggest:

ONLY cutting that one die-cut at once (doing more than one at one time reduces the pressure per inch)

adding a piece of card stock along with the metal shim, but if it feels too tight, don't roll it through. I'm afraid you'll "over-shim" and bust your machine.

I'm not sure what to suggest aside from replacing your machine, which you have said is not an option right now. Maybe ask Santa for a Big Shot or Vagabond for Christmas?

You shouldn't have problems with the less intricate dies and your CB (with the metal plate). I know that the intricate ones are the hardest for the CB to handle, although the metal adapter plate seems to solve that problem for everyone who has ever had a problem. I am so sorry it didn't work for you. I'm thinking it's your machine. ???

Hi Jody! What are the differences between Beautiful Bows and Dainty Bows Die-namics - trying to decide between the two!

I went and watched your videos on both products and I can see there's a slight difference in shape and also in size!

I haven't read this whole thread to see if my question is answered, but I do have a question. I purchased a die-namics Hibiscus die today at a local scrapbook shop. It is part of the flower, middle, leaf : all connected, but cuts separately. Do I break it apart?
And why is it why is it missing a petal? I looked in the gallery, and on some of the flowers on the cards, it does look like they pieced the flower together, but on others looks like a whole flower. This is only the 2nd Die-namics I have ever purchased.
Thank you

Sharon

Sorry I missed your first question. Yep, they are a different shape, basically the same sizes, but a tiny bit different. The tails are a little different. The Beautiful Bow is a little more "full" I think. Hope that helps. They both are awesome!

Hi Sharon. You can break it apart if you'd like. I usually do break mine apart by gently bending back and forth until they break apart.

Here is a video that will show you how to assemble the flower: Hibiscus Die-namics from My Favorite Things - YouTube

Wow! Thank you Jody! I can't wait to use it now. Now I have something to use on the next MFT challenge srapbook page.

Quick question please: The clear backing has pulled off from one of my Fishtail dies. Will the die work, and hold up, without that backing? Or do I need to run to the store and buy some super glue? Thank you for your help.


**must admit I loathe super glue. I'm a klutz and always manage to stick my fingers together, or worse, to whatever I am trying to repair.

HI there. The die is fully functional with or without the clear backing. I actually remove all of mine right when I get a set of STAX. They will hold up just fine. It isn't a "structural" component of the die.

The newest STAX releases do not include the plastic backer at all.

Thanks for checking.

No super glue needed.

Default Blue prints

Hi I just purchased the new blue prints, do I need anything other than my big shot with the adapter plates it came with?

No, you don't. You'll close all tabs on your big shot and sandwich the Blueprints die with your paper between the 2 clear cutting plates. That's it.

Have fun with your new die.

Here is the cutting sandwich:

I am looking for the tutorial on how to use the new poppy dies with the clear stamps. I know one of the DT posted how to line up the die with the stamped image. Love those poppies.

What is the difference between the fishtail flags and the fishtail flags stax? I've never purchased any of your dies before but these look very intriguing and I want to know which ones I should get..... Thank you!

Can you pressure emboss with the die-namics?

We have Fishtail Flags STAX and Fishtail Flag Layers STAX. The layers version is slightly bigger so you can layer the two together if desired. They are the same type of die (STAX), which gives more pieces because they are nested inside one another. If you could get only one, I would choose the Fishtail Flag Layers STAX, because that set contains the largest flag, and the smallest piece in the set is very usable for sentiments. If you want to layer with a nice, small border, you'll need both.

If you have any other questions, let us know.

Yes, you can. As a matter the fact, we have a tutorial right here: Create Gorgeous Embossed Backgrounds with Die-namics | My Favorite Things

and right here: https://www.mftstamps.com/blog/learn...ed-background/

When I use my Vagabond, I used the thinnest mat from this product: Die-namics Embossing Pad Combo

So the stack for me is: (from the bottom up) - platform, cutting plate, embossing mat, paper, die, cutting plate.

Hope that helps.

You can also use the same stack with our STENCILS. I have been experimenting with it and I LOVE the results!

Here is a look at all the stencils we carry: Stencils

I was wondering, is there a list of when the ink pads were released? I see a listing for the stamps and the die-namics.

Are you more concerned with the order they were released or the exact release month/year they were released?

I am looking for the order in which they were released. I tend to purchase the inkpads here and there. I tend to purchase them sort of out of order, and then I forget which ones that I didn't purchase.
