Musical Theatre


At last the new StampinUp! Annual Catalogue is live and I can take orders for the wonderful new products and fresh colours.

Here is a theatre card I made with new Zoo Crew Suite. As soon as I saw the pictures of the suite online, I knew I wanted to try this style of card and it was so right. When I make a purchase, I want to know I can really get full use out of every bit - with this suite

*the DSP has cute animals on one side - these are themed - music, hobbies, dancing, party, outdoors, wheels. 

*Each of the papers has a different back-side which is black and white so no scrap gets wasted. Double winner there! 

*The animals themselves are mainly line-drawings with a pop of colour so you can leave them or colour in. The coloured parts go with old and new colours **** - petal pink / pumpkin pie /lemon-lime twist - returning new colour / pool party / crumb cake / basic black 

*they are cute but not tooo cute so they work for young people and young at heart too!

*the animals can be easily fussy cut or even better - there are outline dies to cut out many of them ***

*the stamp set includes 6 animals, 3 sentiments and cute music notes and party stars. I made my own background with the music notes ** They are sized to fit the dies*, great sentimentsin nice font*. I love that I can make these animals in any colour in case i run out of the ones that match the papers.

*the dies include  trees, cloud, flowers, balloons, flag label, plus the curtains and tie-backs to make the stage setting too.

*ooh, nearly forgot!- The suite comes with 2 colours of narrow ribbon (petal pink and lemon/lime) so I don't have to buy any extras for the time being - there is always so much new stuff that I have to be a bit mindful of the budget and not overspend!!!!! We all have a budget! 

So when I buy something new, I like to have 3 stars or uses for products or suites - I got to at least eight without even scratching myhead - so I got it!!!

Can you tell, I love it! Maybe.

I haven't made a video to show the construction of the card but if you search Theatre card there are lots on YouTube.

Thanks so much for joining me again today.
