I have a coupe of these that I bought and tried and the same thing happened. I was told to flour, or pwd sugar, the indents well. I never did try again. Hopefully someone will post and we can both find out. Also, you have to make sure that your dough isn't to thick. It's suppose to just imprint the image.

I think you just have to keep playing with it a little to get the hang of it. The thickness has to be just right, and if you get a cookie stuck in the cutter, try easing it out with a butter knife or thin paring knife. It just takes practice--you'll get it.

Hmmm can you try chilling the dough?

Same thing happened with my rocking horse cookies in my pics. I sprayed the cookie cutter with Pam every once in a while, it really helped.

I think cake_Princess got it...if the dough is rolled out then chilled, it a little firmer and will be able to hold the shape of those indentations mom used to make those cookies for us when we were kids all the time...she made us butter cookies...mmmm...with sprinkles
