Crafters Companion ornate dies
HELP!!! On this past crafts day I excitedly purchased both sets of the Crafter’s Companion Ornate Stackable dies and could not wait until they arrived. When thet did I immediately opened them and made an attempt to make one of each card. I could not successfully place the die on the card fold so it would pop up as Sara demonstrated. I am soooo frustrated right. I have searched YouTube, the internet, Pinterest and the Crafter’s Companion site looking for tutorials about die placement. HELP! I am trying to not get discouraged which would mean throwing these lovely dies in a box in the closet and they cost too much to do that. Are there tutorials anywhere.
Also a suggestion would be to have some kind of indication either on the front or back of the dien showing where to place the die on the card fold line.
YEP I do …… HSN please send a March Program Guide
Vanessa1737 Have you tried U Tube? I learn a lot of crafting technic over there. In the search bar type in the name of the die set you have or Crafter Companion. Hope this helps you. 😉
If I’m thinking about the right dies, these were the new ones that sold out?
This is the info from the CC website…
These gorgeous Die’sire Edge’ables work with each other to create fabulous effects, you can use up to three designs along the fold of an A5 card blank, and each set comes with decorative accessory dies for you to add extra detail to your projects. As the bottom and sides of the die don’t cut, they are incredibly versatile, allowing you to create pop-up cards, borders and frames.
Just wondered if you got the die as far up/down as you needed to the fold of your card? IIRC, on HSN, she tried to show the details on the die… showing the ‘cutting lines’ vs those areas that won’t cut… they would be without the actual ‘blade edge’ if that helps.
You should be able to feel it, or if you’re worried about getting cut… just press it on a piece of paper and then you can tell what part(s) of the dies are cutting and what isn’t. Then I’d take a marker and draw the line across the top/flat side of the dies so you’ll be able to place them correctly in the future.
There are little pointy things on the edges of the die where they line up with the fold. I looked at them by name and even though they are sold out you can still get their picture. I can see them clearly on the butterfly and he birdcage, no as well in the picture on the other ones. There is a 19min video presentation, i didn’t take the time to watch, but if you look at it, it might help you see again what she showed when she demonstrated them.
