Default Die-Versions

While at a rubber stamp show in Mesa I saw some and was informed they are made by Dies Direct who are the makers of CheeryLynn.
My friend bought two and I was the one trying to figure out how to cut them.
They do not have any of the little holes that cheeryLynn has, so its a real pita to clean out all those little pieces when you cut out i.e. Parasol. As well they have a little pad that comes with them that is supposed to help the dies come out. Guess what I wound up doing after trying different things to try to get those little suckers to come out cleanly. I wound up using paper shims, which was EXACTLY what they do in their video. Their video as of two months ago did not show how to use the little pads.

Several weeks later I found out how to use the pads and informed my friend, but have not heard what success she is having.
They are beautiful dies ,but not for all the work when they dont come out easily like others do.
