Guest Designer for the CLASSroom plus Blog Candy

Ellen Hutson asked if I would like to be a guest designer for the CLASSroom posting a tutorial on how to use the product "GooseBumps" to create beautiful "speckled" poinsettias.  I am thrilled to do this.  Above is a picture of three different colors of  "speckled" poinsettias I created using the Susan's Garden Poinsettia dies and GooseBumps Clear Texture Spray.   

You will find a detailed tutorial on how I created these poinsettias, in Ellen Hutson's  the CLASSroom.  Please go over to see detailed instructions on how I used the GooseBumps and how I assemble the poinsettias.  I know you will have fun creating these beautiful poinsettias.

 Would you like to win the blog candy pictured below?  Be sure to leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win the Susan's Garden Poinsettia dies, a bottle of GooseBumps, and the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit. Please be sure your comment has a way to contact you (email address) so we can contact you if you are the winner. Comments for this blog candy will be available for the drawing through Thursday, December 19th.  The winner will be announced on Friday, December 20th.   Ellen Hutson will mail these products out to the winner.



All the products I used to create these beautiful poinsettias can be purchased from Ellen Hutson, LLC.  Just click on the links below:

Selma, I have been following you now for over 2 years I believe, and I am constantly amazed at your beautiful flower designs. I am sure I would never be able to match what you have created, but the thought that I might one day, inspires me to try. On my things to do list for 2014 is to take one whole day, look at all your posts I've saved, and try to even be close. :-) Thanks for all you do to inspire us to be better. Merry Christmas!
