Marianne snowflakes!!!

Postby DingleDel » Sat May 15, 2010 6:13 pm

I am hovering over getting some....but I do have a few problems with getting the cut card out of the dies on my Marianne flowers/leaves die.

Has anyone got the snowflakes...are they OK to use or should I expect the same issues. ( I don't think it's enough of a problem to actually stop my buying them though!LOL :wink: )

Thank you!! XXX
Adele.

That'll be me then :lol:

I'd not used mine yet so just had a play & some are easy to eject & others you need a craft knife.

Image
These all came out easily, I gently bent back one of the prongs of a snowflake & the card popped out easily - the 1st one has several small holes in the back of the die so easy to pop out
Image
The 1st two in this set needed a craft knife too but the 3rd was easy
Image
the middle one here needed a craft knife but the others were easy

Also had to use a craft knife to ping out the residue paper left from the die cut :lol:

Hope this helps!!

Sue

:roflmao: shhhhhhhhh - that was meant to be my little secret

I've been selling a lot of my old stash & cds & spending the proceeds on new (& these take up hardly any room 8) )


Enjoy your new toys when they arrive

Oh, the more I look the more I am confused. Some of the snowflakes seem too big for what I really want.

Liz, am I right in saying the largest of those Spellbinders are 6cm? :doh
