Noob Q re. memorizing multiple ordered lists

*Caveat -- I'm a totally-forgetful memory art newbie. So go easy on me!

I recently memorized a list of ~70 ordered/numbered objects using a P (without AO) list of celebrities. (#11 = Aziz Ansari, etc)

I now want to memorize a NEW ordered list -- a deck of cards, this time -- but I need to keep the old list intact in my memory.

Can I use those same 70 celebrities without risking forgetting the first list? Or would I need to add the cards into the first list? Or should I use a new list or technique? (I've started using Derren Brown's variant of the peg system technique for the cards, but wondering if I should just be working with my original P list, or if I should be creating a proper PAO list, or...)

In this particular case, a new list would do you better, plus it's fun
