Challenge #50: Uninked Stamp

Hello Users!  Happy Birthday to us!  Use it Tuesday is turning 2! 

We would love to have you join in our celebration by making a project that uses an uninked stamp...and as a BONUS...use GOLD!

We are also celebrating our birthday by opening a Facebook page that will keep the party alive!  Please feel free to like us...we will showcase players each challenge as well as keep you up to date on our happenings.

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday March 8th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE050 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Stephanie used a stamp she got free in July (don't you love free gifts?!) and paired it with sold gold sew-easy thread!  We love how it looks with the button!

Tammy had fun digging through her stamps to find something uninked...and then admitted she discovered MANY that would have fit the challenge!  Oh la la...what a beautiful use of the gold embossing powder and her hoarded ribbon.  Amour!

Tracy found not only uninked stamps, but unmounted stamps!  Oh the fun we discover in our stash!  Her black ink was unopened and she used hoarded papers, too.  We love that flower, too!

Danielle rarely uses gold, but she pulled out all the stops for us!  She used gold embossing powder to accent the hoarded background stamp, as well as on the wood veneer stars and letters.  Even though she only used 3 stars, this is a 5 star card in our eyes!

Heather is celebrating her baby girl's first birthday!  Just last year we had a baby challenge in her honor.  Where does the time go?  Anyway, this uninked Birthday Monkey could not be more perfect...and she paired it with a gold embossed number1, as well as the gold layering.  Happy Birthday, sweet monkey!

Nicole had the help of an 8 year old with this card!  I would say they make quite a team!  We love the use of her uninked Tim Holtz background stamp paired with this embossed gold flower on vellum.  She also snuck in some gold cording and layering to accent the design.

Sherri broke out a new set of alpha stamps to make this delicious layout!  So glad she also used hoarded papers and Pink Paislee trim for this triple-threat!

Stacey also used three hoarded items for her darling card that celebrates spring!  Her sentiment is the unused stamp, and she got double gold with the butterfly punch and the gold stickles!

And we have our guest designer, Melanie, who won Challenge #48.  She made this sparkly beauty for our challenge!  Her gold glitter was hoarded and her stamps are all over a year old!  Way to use it!  Thanks so much Melanie!! 

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
