Join our Combined Blog Hop!

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!

If you came from Anita's blog- you are on the right way and if not- scroll bellow to see the full blog hop list!
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! :-)
You have until Valentine's Day, Sunday the 14th at midnight EST (New York time), which is 6 am Monday 15th for those of you on Central European Time (Amsterdam, Berlin, Oslo), and 5 am if you live in the UK. You can find a time converter here. Winners will be announced 18th February.
Enjoy the hop and good luck!
Here is what I made with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and stamps from Rubber Dance:
 February is a month of Love (aka Valentine). So making something with a heart was a MUST. We were also asked to use Rubber Dance February challenge colors, so red- Kraft and white are almost all I used (a bit of gold doesn't count).
I used EyeConnectCrafts WINGS  and connected them to an old cardstock heart that was a good fit in size. Each one of three pieces was stamped with Rubber Dance Heart stamps and some Rubber Dance background stamps (the wings mostly). I worked with the very same mist to color the piece and if the colors look different, this is because of the original background color. The same Close to Heart Tattered Angels mist was used. Over white heart it looks bright red. Over Kraft bare chipboards it looks dark deep red.
All three pieces were covered with DecoArts One step crackle and then I added a bit of gold mist over. When enlarged- you can easy see the crackles with the mist over them.
The Love word was also stamped with RD stamp over Kraft die cut piece and then painted with white paint and covered with DecoArts glaze. Even paper flowers were once white and I changed them with the very same mist.
The wings were connected with brads and they CAN MOVE! This is the trick with ECC pieces: add brads to holes and move your pieces.

I hope you like my winged heart and now to your next stop in the hop:
