It's Showtime!

Hi everyone! Are you ready for day 2 of the sneak peeks of the upcoming Greeting Farm releases? Today we have the fabulous "Showtime" set! I pretty much squealed with delight when I opened my package and saw this set! It is a Circus set, with Anya as the Ringmaster, an adorable elephant, some popcorn, and some cute sentiments. I could see it for kids birthday cards, or baby announcements using the cute elephant. But I also saw the ringmaster Anya as a Cabaret singer and that's how I did my first card! The background (white) was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, although it's hard to see in this picture. I made stage curtains with some DP from DCWV, using a scallop border punch on the top. The top curtain and red CS under it are popped up on dimensional dots, too. I used Crystal Effects on her top hat and bow tie for some extra shine. And, speaking of shine, there is lots of silver glitter for an extra sparkly bodysuit! She is colored with Copics:

Skin: E00,E11,R20
Clothes: R22,R24,R29,R39,C1,C3,C5,C7,C9

This set was so cute, I just had to make a card with the elephant, too. Right away he made me think of a new baby boy card, so even though there is no sentiment that is what I had in mind. The DP is some older Basic Grey I had. I used Crystal Effects on this card, too, on his hat and shorts. He is colored with Copics:

I LOVE these previews for Showtime! I think it's so awesome that you, me, and Michelle all had similar ideas with her yet the cards are so different...too funny! Great minds, right? Love your little elephant card, too! he is too sweet and totally deserves to be showcased in his own card. Can't wait for the blog hop!
