Just wondering if anyone is having trouble with punches. I have bought many punches.......EKSuccess, MS, Fiskars and cannot punch the delicate ones on SU cardstock, Bazzil, CTMH, or any of the better quality cardstocks. All those cute little fences, mice, drippy goo, villages, snowflakes, flowers,lace etc. Any suggestions? Any solutions?
I'm not much help but to the fiskars punches. There is a website called fiskeeters (http://www.fiskateers.com) and it is a great group run/moderated etc....by fiskars for all their tools. If there is no help here you may consider that group. You may have to join to access everything but don't worry it's free and they have great welcome gifts you'll get in the mail.
Hope that helps some.
There is a punch "helper". It gives more leverage. I don't know if it will help with the heavier paper or not. I just use layers for bulk.
I'm having trouble with a couple of the MS border punches.... I feel like I'm going to break the punch using it on cardstock of any type. I haven't had too much trouble with the Fiskars punches yet.
If I'm having trouble with my punches -- I try to punch a few times through waxed paper -- it seems to smooth them out a bit. I also punch a few times with foil, if I feel like I have used the punch many times and it is a little dull. I hope one of these techniques work for all of you out there having punch issues.
