Use It Tuesday #15 - Un-inked!

Hi, everyone!
I'm back with another challenge from Use It Tuesday!
It's a fun and super easy one. 
You just have to pull out an un-inked stamp to ink up. 
I know you have some in your stash. :)
***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!***

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge! This week, we have Nicki joining us after winning Challenge #14. To see her project along with those from the Use It Tuesday Design Team, and more info on the challenge, please visit Use It Tuesday!

Now here's what I came up with for the "Un-inked Challenge".

This adorable onesie was originally made years ago for a friend's baby shower.
The directions for it was available over on Lauren Meader's blog.
She now has a file for the onesie for purchase HERE

 I had bought the Baby Button Bits stamp set from Papertrey Ink a couple of years ago.
I inked up the pea shaped stamp but the rest of it has gone un-inked! 

I couldn't decide which SU ink color to stamp with to go with the Barely Banana onesie. I even called a couple of my dear friends, Michelle and Jana, for their advice.
In the end, I rummaged around a bit and found two packs of brand new SU! ink pads!! They are new colors that I had bought and never opened. YIKES! The Pear Pizzazz was perfect for what I had in mind. SO glad I found these packs. :)

Also unopened and unused is my bag of Papertrey Ink Vintage Buttons.
These particular colors are not on their website for sale.
However, other fabulous sets of buttons are available HERE.

See the lavendar threads that I put on the button?
Unopened bag of embroidery floss from Michaels!
Yup, yup... more hoarded goodies! LOL!

Okie dokie! That's it for now.
Don't forget to hop over to Use It Tuesday for inspiration and information!

Wow! That's alot of unused items! I can't believe you haven't even cracked the package on those stamp sets. I admit, I might have an unopened single inkpad, but a whole pack!?!? I'm glad you found the Pear Pizazz. It's a great color. - Heather B
