Monkey for cupcakes

Pieces cut from the NEW ARRIVAL cartridge.  I used it all except for the round small piece
besides the NEW ARRIVAL cartridge monkey I also used the Peachy Keen stamps "Critter faces size med. for the eyes and colored it in with the white daisy marker from ctmh. Ctmh cardstock was also used. For the nose.. I used the black diamond from Stickles.  His belly; this was fun.  I used the Puffy Velvet fabric marker from Marvy color brown #6; after I "smooshed" the color into the circle of the belly, I then heat embossed it and whalaa.. the belly arose all puffy like belly hair...  I have a colored toothpick glued down with hot a glue gun to the back of the monkey.  oh yes, I forgot to add that I have green for the shadow of the monkey.

I made 50 of these cutie monkeys for cupcakes for a baby shower next weekend.   it does look cuter in person that this scanned monkey... I promise  :)     here's a question... I want to do something with the mouth - but don't know exactly what.  Do you have any suggestions??

  2. This is super cute! I usually just use a marker to accent the mouth on these critters.

  9. This monkey is soooo cute!! I always forget about that one on New Arrival!! :) I think you could just use a marker for the mouth -- I like to hide the face cuts on my gypsy (or use the blackout feature) so that I can use the PK face stamps instead too... Whatever you do, I'm sure it will be just right!! :)

    Thanks so much for stopping to see me and leaving me a wonderful comment on my blog hop post... I'm your newest follower now!! :) Come back and visit sometime, I'm looking forward to seeing what you create next!! :)
