Hello Crafters! We're excited to welcome you to the very first joint blog hop with EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps!
Erin Sparler of EyeConnect Crafts (USA) and Bibi Lindahl of Rubber Dance Stamps (Norway) met online in the fall of 2015. They quickly hit it off and discovered that they had a LOT in common, or as Erin so eloquently put it: There is no word for old friends who have just met!The Design Teams have been generously supplied with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and rubber stamps from Rubber Dance Stamps and we are all thrilled to show you the results with this joint Blog Hop.
What's in it for you? Glad you asked! One lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate worth $25 from BOTH EyeConnect Crafts AND Rubber Dance to spend on their websites! Another lucky winner will receive a surprise gift from BOTH Erin and Bibi, with $25 worth of products from their two companies!
What do you have to do? Not much! 1) Visit all the blog posts in the hop and leave a comment. 2) Become a follower of the EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps blogs. That's it! And who knows... maybe YOU will tie new bonds of friendships across the globe, too! :-)

Enjoy the hop and good luck!
Here's my project for this blog hop with featuring Rubber Dance Art Stamps and Eyeconnect Crafts MDF chippies.
I made a very simple card, because I feel it really brings out the details of the attached pieces :) The heart is from I Heart Art. Stamped with rose red Stazon onto transluscent shrink pastic. I stamped the music stamp over it with black Stazon and after fussy cutting I went around the edges with a red Promarker. After shrinking the heart I covered it with Glossy Accents. The text is from Affirmations and has been heat embossed straight on the card blank.
The wings have been triple embossed and stamped into. Here are some step by step pictures... I started with a pair of scalloped totem wings. The wings had a small hole for connecting them to other chippies. Since I didn't need it, I dabbed in some texture paste. If I should change something, I'd have painted a layer of white on the wings first. That way the embossing powder would have given an even finish earlier. Once the coverage was good (perhaps three layers of embossing), I added one more layer of embossing ink and powder and inked the music stamp with Versamark. I kept the stamp at hand while I heated the powder and stamped into the hot embossing.
Here is the hop list, enjoy your tour!
