Most of the newer companies have dies that are similar to spellbinders, so try the same sandwich as for those.

I don't think the wax paper helps getting a good cut, but it definitely makes it easier to remove the small detailed pieces of card stock from the dies.

Sometimes it helps to run the die through several times, or turn a quarter turn & run through again. I know that my cuttlebug has one side that is tighter than the other.

You use plates A, B & C to cut. Best to cut into your B plate, since those are easier to replace. You have to emboss in a separate pass through your machine using plate A & 2 B + your rubber mat +...

While without your C plate, you can probably still use them. Use a B plate plus extra shims (card stock and/or chipboard) until you get the right sandwich. A little less convenient, but still...

I've never seen them. Are they thin like spellbinders? or MFT or Papertrey? If so, then use the same sandwich as you would use for those.

I would either flip C plate & B plate, or flip the die over and put the cardstock on top of it. You don't want to cut into your C plate.
