Default Spellbinders Die Leaving Brown Marks

I wondered if anyone has had a problem with their dies leaving brown marks on the cut edge of the paper?

I bought a set of Labels 14 about 18 months ago but had never used them. I saw a card on Pinterest that I wanted to CASE so I dug them out today.

The largest die is leaving brown paint on the edge of the die cut which is spoiling the white card. I have washed the die and rubbed it with alchohol blending solution and it is still leaving marks. I tried an eraser but it didn't remove them.

I used waxed paper between the paper and the die and this prevented the marks but it also caused the shape to fall out of the die before I could emboss it (using a Cuttlebug).

Any suggestions please?

I have used Goo Gone with a degree of success. Just lightly apply around the edges and wipe clean. Hate it when they mess up a white card! Good luck

Thanks, Chris.

Unfortunately we cant get Goo Gone in the UK. Will look for some when I'm in Florida at New Year.

I have had some dies leave tiny marks before but this die is really bad.

I've had minor brown marks but nothing too bad. However I'm so unhappy with my Grand Calibur and their customer service I won't be buying anymore of their dies.

Hi Lesley!
My apologies this is happening with your dies. Please, try scrubbing them with an old toothbrush. If this still doesn't help, please email me at KTillman@Spellbinders.us and we will get your issue resolved.

I have had this problem, but using baking paper between has always solved it for me as I cut and emboss at the same time. Is it possible for you to tape the die in place so the label won't fall out before you emboss? I use the blue painters masking tape for all this type of thing.

A few years ago I had one die set that left brown marks .IF I recall it was long rectangles . I tried every thing and nothing worked . I finally took it back to the store for a replacement .

I have to tape the die to the freezer paper too .

I had posted in the "Spellbinders cut terrible thread" and thought I should maybe post this here as well. I was having a terrible time cutting my Resplendent Rectangles. The top and/or bottom of the die was not cutting all the way through the CS. I tried various things like spot-shimming the specific areas, turning my CS 90 degrees and running through the BS a second time, using the metal adapter plate, etc. and nothing was working.

After reading about others using an Olfa self-healing cutting pad I decided to give it a try. I also purchased the Sizzix Solo Thin Die Adapter. This is my sandwich (from the bottom up):

Solo Thin Die Adapter
Magnetic Platform
Olfa Self-healing Cutting Pad (purchased in the sewing dep't.)
Cardstock
Die (face down)
Cutting Plate

I will say this sandwich is tight going through so it will NOT work on my machine with thicker cardstock. I have now successfully cut out the largest rectangle and it cuts everything out in one pass. It releases from the die easily with just a few pokes from my paper piercer. All the little pieces are removed from the CS but I do have to poke them out of the die with my paper piercer. I have not added the waxed paper so this may make a difference with those pieces.

Each machine will be different so this may or may not work for your machine. Cutting CS that is the thickness of SU whisper White works great for me. I tried the Basic Black CS and the sandwich going through was definitely more difficult so even a slight change in the thickness makes a difference. It did cut it all out but the sandwich was very tight.

I will only be using my work-around for this one die as its the only one I have had problems with. It worked for me so I thought I would share. I may try replacing the the Solo Thin Die Adapter with a cardboard shim that is slightly thinner when I have to cut CS other than Whisper White. I was not comfortable with how tight the sandwich was using the BB cardstock.

Yes, its the Sizzix platform. I bought it through Stampin' Up! but I believe they are the exact same if you buy it elsewhere.

Let me know how it works for you.

Help...... is there any special ways for removing dies from packaging..... I have tried to remove the tape or slide my paddle under the die but sometimes they are so stuck, that the die itself, has caused the die to bend...... I notice this when I go to use the die it has spots that don't want to cut....... is there any suggestions

The way I do it I think prevents the dies from bending.

I cut the plastic packaging. I remove the dies on the display board that they are taped to.
There is always a section that is NOT taped down . After I locate that I lay the whole thing down on the table with the dies down on the table . The front of the display board is facing up toward me .

I lift the display board and put my entire hand on the the dies and hold them firmly as I remove the display board from the dies .

I don't remove the dies from the display board I do it the other way around. I remover the display board from the dies .

If there is tape remaining on the dies I carefully remove the tape while hold the dies flat on the table.

If any adhesive residue remains on the dies I use Undu to remove it .

What ever you pull on will bend . I prefer the display board to bend not the dies .

I hope this makes sense .
Barbara

I would like to use the Sizzix scallop pop up insert die in the purple Wizard. Not only does the edge cut, but the crease lines are cutting as well. I do have a crease pad, but can't seem to get the right combination to make this work. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi! does anyone know why there are two notches on each of the Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One dies?
Thanks, Jennie.

Hi Lady Boz'

The notches are alignment indictors so that the curve can be centered. I think the outer ones are for the card base and the inner ones are for a slightly smaller layer.

I have a question about the matting dies I cannot find anything that shows JUST the A set or JUST the B set...is there anything out there showing how these look if you only have the one set? Does anyone have a picture in the gallery of a card made only using one of these sets? And if not...does anyone have anything comparing the matting dies to the rectangle or even the long rectangle dies? So confusing Thanks!

For a long time I only had the Matting Basics B and I used those on regular cards as a layer. The difference with these dies and the rectangles is the Matting Basics dies are proportioned exactly with the A2 size card (each going down in size by 1/4").

The rectangles are similar in shape, but in different dimensions. And the Long Rectangles are similar in shape, but really stretched out. Does that make sense?

Thanks, Michelle! So, no matter which set I buy, they will go down by 1/4"...right? I don't need both sets to have a 1/4" change in layer?

Edited: Here is where my measuring skills fail me. My A2 card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. To me, and when I layer my cards, I then go down 1/4" to 4 x 5 1/4. Next layer down is 2 3/4 x 5

When I look at the measurements for both the A set and the B set, neither of those measurements match what I consider to be 1/4" increments. Help please?

Yes with 1 set they go down 1/2" in size, so when they are cut and layered on each other the paper has a 1/4" border all around.

Then with 2 sets such as combining the LG and SM sizes or matting basics A and B- they go down 1/4" in size, so when they are layered the paper has a 1/8" border all around.

HA! I think I see it now. I am going down 1/4" but my borders are 1/8"...so for the way that I like my borders to be, I would need both sets. I think I see it now. Thanks!!!

I agree, I much prefer the 1/8" borders myself. So I have both sets for all my shapes. Good thing Cut At Home has monthly coupons!! Until I made the team, that's how I built up my stash!

Hi!
I just joined the world of Spellbinders. JoAnn's has them all on sale again, so I bought six of the Nestabilities sets.
I figured out a way to store them. I put them in old CD cases I use for clear stamps. I dug out my old Xyron 9" system that isn't support anymore and I rolled out some of the magnetic laminate and trimmed it to fit inside the case. The dies stick to the magnetic sheet so they don't slip out of the CD case, yeah...
I do have the tan mat. I picked up the magnetic sheet that goes through the cutting process. It's thin, like the tan mat. Can it be used in a cuttlebug? What is a good sandwich for this process???

Thanks

You can find all the "sandwiches" for all the machines out there on the Spellbinders website. They have info for the Cuttlebug as well.
Click into their "How To" tab, then into the "Product Instructions" tab. They have several PDFs you can open depending on what you need.

Here is the link:
Product Instructions & User Guides | Spellbinders

Go about 1/2 way down and you'll see Spellbinders Die Compatibility Chart.
