I am in love with the Zany Zoo stamp set and dies and the coordinating Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper! First of all, the images in the Designer Series Paper are fantastic because you can either die-cut or fussy cut the images to use in your card designs.

And then there are the dies. Stampin’ Up! really out-did themselves when they created the dies. Not only do they include dies for some of the images in the Designer Series Paper, but there are also dies to create a stage setting: a curtain die plus curtain tiebacks, and even a die for a stool for one of the musical image characters to sit on while on stage.

Product Coordination

While playing with this suite of products, I discovered that it also coordinates well with other stamp sets. For example:

  • The knitting llama can coordinate with the Crafting with You stamp bundle which has a basket and yarn. And it can also coordinate with the rug in the Lazy Days stamp set.
  • The ‘musicians’ can coordinate with Enjoy the Rhythm.
  • And when creating a stage setting for your card, you can create woodsy background scenery by using the large ‘woods’ die from Grassy Grove and die cutting in from black cardstock.
  • Scroll to the bottom to see photos of what I created.
