Getting Messy with Nk Studio Stamp Sets

We are back to the weekly grind, but with an extra awesome blog hop this week with the sweet and amazing mixed media artist, the designer of N* Studio design stamps sets made by Stampendous!

This week the design team is teaming up with Nathalie Kalbach and her super talented and international group of designer team members for a hop with the stamp and stencil sets that include a two-sided foam stamp. Perfect for mixed media fun!

There are going to be THREE extremely fortunate commenters at the end of this week because Stampendous is giving away prize packages that include all THREE of the Nathalie Kalbach Foam/Cling and Stencil Stamp Sets. Be sure to comment and add where you are from in your comment because this is open to all the international folks! Please get the details on today's Stampendous blog post.

The hops for today are:
