* In common language the Genitive of the substantival possessive pronoun is not used. There is another form of a possessive that could be used (der unsrige, die unsrige, das unsrige), but it sounds really antiquated. If you want to form a Genitive of unser it is mostly done like in English.

Das ist der Schlüssel von unserem (Auto etc.).
This is the key to ours. (car etc.)

  Example: die Schachtel (= box) possessed object => feminine, singular
Ich sehe meine, aber unsere nicht.
I see mine but not ours.

  Example: das Kleid (= dress) possessed object => neutral, singular
Du kannst mit unserem hingehen.
You can go in ours.

  Example: die Häuser (= house) possessed object => neutral, plural
Ich sehe unsere, aber ihre nicht.
I see ours but not hers.
