Neat and Tangled Day

The arrival of yesterday's Neat and Tangled stock was very timely - it meant I can share a card I made a couple of weeks ago with the popular time warp and a long time ago sets which are now back in stock.   I LOVE these sets - so great for the men in our lives - particularly if like me, you live with a Sci-Fi geek as this card was for one of his friends.

I went for the classic Star Wars colours of yellow text on the black background and embossed the sentiments and then over stamped with white pigment ink and smudged it with my fingers for the feeling of warp speed!   A little washi on the side finished it off.

I also wanted to play with the Origami map from the last Neat and Tangled release which is brand new in store and is just beautiful.   My cousin's daughter has just landed her dream job as a flight attendant with Emirates and this set makes the most perfect good luck card as she sets of for her new life in Dubai.

I stamped the map with versafine olive green and then did a simple watercolour wash using distress inks and then stamped the little plane icon with flight paths coming out of the UAE which is marked with a little diamante star.  Finished with a popped up sentiment from the same set.


  • We have some exciting new products coming - hopefully they will be here this week - the stunning microfine glitters that are a favourite of Jennifer McGuire from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  We are also getting their beautiful embossing folders and selection of their dies, double-sided adhesive sheets and shimmer sheetz.
  • We have restocks coming from Mama Elephant - we got as many penguins as they had left in stock but that wasn't many - sorry - I  will keep trying!
  • We have Lawn Fawn restocks coming soon as well.
  • We have ordered the entire new release from Altenew - it will ship next week and will be with us a couple of weeks later customs permitting.
  • The latest release from Lil' Inker Designs is also en-route so November is going to be another exciting month at Make the Day Special Stamp Store!

All sounds amazing, you're doing a fab job! Can I suggest two things that you might think about stocking? The 40lb vellum like SSS stocks ... you won't believe how hard it is to get a lighter weight vellum that's not 100gsm. Also masking sheets from Inkadinkado (or whoever makes them!)... also hard to get hold of and would be fantastic if we would buy them from you. Just a suggestion if you wanted it xx
