Challenge #61: Un-Inked Stamps!

 Happy Tuesday, Users!

We are playing with an ol' favorite challenge this week...
we are asking you to use an UNINKED STAMP!

We know you have them...  :)

***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 up using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday August 23, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE060 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!

Let's check out what our Design Team created this week:

Tracy made this darling layout using not only an uninked stamp, but one that was not even mounted!  I bet many of you have those in your stash!  What a darling layout about sweet baby Grady!  Looks like she used up plenty of paper, too!

Rachel made this really cool 3-easel card using a darling forgotten clear stamp of a snoozing Grandpa Bear.  How many of those do you forget to use because you can't see them?!  Rachel also made great use of chipboard stars!  You can see more views of her card on her blog.

Tammy pulled out a forgotten Ali Edwards set to dress up this cute page!  She also used some hoarded designer paper, thickers and banners.  Way to use that stash, Tammy!!  You cleaned-up on this challenge!

Jessica A used a circle token stamp and dressed it up with a ton of stickles for a totally different look!  She also pulled out her hoarded paper and die cuts to tie it all together!  We do agree...great things ARE small things brought together!

Valentina paired new with old, taking an uninked stamp (earth flowers) and using it with a well loved stamp (her butterflies)!  She also tried out a new-to-her technique called colored layering.  This fluttered its way to our hearts!

Becky had a funny story...she bought this WHOLE stamp set for the cute kitty you see here, yet she had not used the kitty stamp but used the others!  She also used her hoarded papers and spectrum markers to finish off this sweet card.  We are glad this stamp pitter-pattered its way into use, Becky!

Jessica B made this picture perfect layout using stash as old as her darling daughter!  The paper and stamps had been sitting quietly in her closet for 4 years.  We smiled not only at the fact that she used some unloved stamps, but she is also cracking away at her daughter's baby album!

Nicole made this FUN card using an unused Penny Black stamp and her hoarded flower die!  I think her stamp was probably giving her love for finally using it!  We love her bright, fun colors, too.  :)  Way to go, Nicole!!

Brenshevia inked up a Kenny K stamp she had in her stash, coloring it with her Copic markers which don't see much use!  Her card looks like a party with those darling banners, swirls, and blingy flowers.  Celebrate it up for using that stash!

Heather believes that an apple a day makes the hoarded stash go away!  She inked up an old MFT stamp and paired it with the perfect hoarded papers.  The craft doctor could not have ordered anything that would have been more perfect!

We are so very pleased to have Gloria guest design for us this week!  She used her hoarded ribbons, buttons and butterfly that had been punched out for over a year!  She topped off the butterfly with stashed bling...and keeping true to our blog mission, she used hoarded paper and stamps too!  Thanks for designing for us, Gloria!!

Now, go Use It!!
