Every Little Bit "October" Directions

October is one of my favorite months on this project that I made for the Royal Blog Tour. I think it's because the bats are sooo cute! They have such happy little faces and are anything but scary for Halloween, even if they are flying in front of the moon. If you've been creating the months along with this tutorial, this is an easy one! It's not nearly as time consuming as some of the other ones. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make October's picture:
Every Little Bit and Full Calendar Stamp Sets and Sanded Background Stamp
Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Basic Black Classic Ink
Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, and Basic Black Card Stock
Black Stazon Ink
Paper Snips Scissors
Blender Pen
Modern Label Extra Large Punch
Magnetic Movers and Shapers Punch Windows Set of 4
Circles #2 Die
Big Shot


1. Cut out your Crumb Cake Card Stock to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the background.
2. Ink the Sanded background stamp with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.
3. Stamp the Sanded stamp onto the background.
4. Stamp "October" with Basic Black Ink on Naturals Ivory Card Stock.
5. Punch it out with the Modern Label Extra Large Punch.
6. Use the Magnetic Movers and Shapers die to cut out another Modern Label shape from Basic Black Card Stock.
7. Adhere the Modern Label shapes to each other and then to the Crumb Cake Background.
8. Use the Circles #2 die with your Big Shot to cut out the circle that is about 1 3/4" in diameter from Daffodil Card Stock.
9. Sponge Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Classic Inks onto the Card Stock circle to give it more depth. Run the edge of the circle along the Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Pad to give it a defined outline.
10. Stamp 3 bats onto Very Vanilla Card Stock with Black Stazon Ink.
11. Using a blender pen, color in the bats lightly with Black Classic Ink.
12. Cut the three bats out with your Paper Snips scissors.
13. Adhere the yellow moon to the Crumb Cake background.
14. Adhere the three bats to the moon. It's okay if they stick up a little from the background piece. This makes it look like they're flying!
15. Ta Da! October is finished!

Join me again next Wednesday for November's Tutorial!
