Just a regular ink pad from say Michaels or Hobby Lobby will do the trick easily.  As for the letters, my suggestion would be Ebay as I have never seen them in the store without the whole pack.

I’d probably just go with a regular ink. I’d stay away from ones that say they’re pigment ink since they dry slowly. Great for embossing, not so great for having to have hundreds of bags strewn all over your house drying.

I’m a stamper/scrapbooker and my favorite type of ink pad to use when stamping is Memento. Whatever you do, stay away from Staz-on Ink Pads. They are wonderful for stamping with a bold dark print, but they will stain your stamps. VersaFine is another favorite ink pad of mine because it’s very precise.

As far as stamps, you are probably aren’t going to find the letters by themselves. You will have to buy the packs with the whole alphabet. Other option (if you aren’t in a hurry) is to order a custom stamp on Etsy. Custom stamps are so much fun and can be just as cheap if you find the right seller.
