Lift Up Balloon and Flowers

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today with 2 cards using the beautiful Lift Up Balloon stamp set. This set is so versatile in that it can be used as a hot air balloon and flowers can be used by themselves. I will be showing both ways today.

Card 1:

Here's how I made this card:
  • Stamp the flowers and the lower part of the hot air balloon with the Tubby Craft Black ink. 
  • Color the image with markers. I used Copics - RV14, RV13, RV21, RV10, V09, V17, V15, V12, YR68, Y38, YR31, E59, E57 and E53.
  • Stamp the sentiment with the Tubby Craft Black ink.
  • Adhere the panel on to a top folding A2 card base.
The Tubby Craft inks works well with Copic markers. As you see, there is no smudging. Here's another pic of this card.

Card 2:

For the second card, I decided to try watercoloring on gold embossing.

Here's how I made this card:

  • Gold emboss the flower image multiple times, along the left and the right edge of the watercolor panel. Gold emboss the sentiment from Fancy Sentiments.
  • Watercolor the image with Tubby Craft inks. I used the Imperial Red and Tangy Orange for the flowers, Hot Pink and Light Pink for the butterfly and I mixed Lemon Yellow and Sapphire Blue for the greens. I pressed the ink pad on to acrylic block and used a wet brush to watercolor the image.
  •  I inked the edges of an A2 card base with Tangy Orange ink and adhered the watercolored panel on to it.

These inks are so lovely to watercolor. I love the bright and lovely colors.

Guest Design Post by Hussena Calcuttawala

Hello everyone,

This is Hussena here, and I am so happy to be guest designing here :) I blog at Quill and Punch Works and you can find me on social media here: 

Today, I am sharing three projects I made using the Buttercup set. I absolutely love working with floral images, and the Buttercup set has some really pretty florals which are perfect for coloring and layering. Here's a look at what I have created using this set.

To create my card, I first stamped a bunch of flowers and leaves from the Buttercup set using black dye ink on watercolor paper.

After stamping the images, I watercolored them using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers in shades of pinks and blues for the flowers, and green for the leaves. Then I fussy cut the images and put them aside.

Once the images were ready, it was time to work on my background and card base. For this, I took a card panel roughly measuring 4 1/2 inches by 5 inches and created a die-cut window in the center of it using a Spellbinders die.

Next, I did some stenciling on my card base using a yellow ink and an iCraft Lattice stencil. I kept my stenciling confined only to the center of my card where the die cut window would be placed. Then, I did my floral arrangement using the previously fussy cut images on my die cut window. Finally, I heat embossed my sentiment (which is from the same Buttercup set), on a strip of black cardstock using Super Fine White embossing powder. As a final touch, I added some paint splatters using black acrylic paint.

Next up is a tag  I created using the same Buttercup set. I have kept it a single layer one, and have done some masking and pencil coloring on this.

To create this tag, I first stamped and masked the floral images from this set on the base of my die cut tag. Then, using my Prismacolor pencils, I did some simple coloring of the images.

Once my stamping and coloring were done, I added a thin strip of black and white striped pattern paper above my image, as well as a thin strip of gold foil paper to further embellish it. Finally, I stamped the sentiment above the foil strip which is from the Buttercup set.

My final project is also a gift tag, and here I have created a layered tag.

To create this tag, I first die cut my base using a shaped die. I have used two tags here so that the recipient can write the message on the inside. To embellish the front of the tag, I used an ornate frame in the center which was die cut using a Spellbinders die and colored using Inka Gold Old Gold.

I used some stamped and colored, florals and leaves from the Buttercup set to create my floral cluster. I then added my heat embossed sentiment on the side of the frame. Finally, I added some clear sequins to finish off my tag.

I hope you like my projects created using the Buttercup set and are inspired to create using this set.
If you have any doubts or queries regarding my projects, please leave me a comment, and I will get back to you soon. 

Thank you, Shruti for inviting me to guest design for Tubby Crafts. I had a great time working with the Buttercup set :)

Let's find some pearls and treasure..

Hello crafty friends!!

Devika here and today I am sharing the different ways in which you can use the stamp set from February release,  Precious Treasure...the moment I saw this stamp set, I fell for it!

There are just endless ways in which you can use it.

I will also be sharing how you can use the different coloured Tubby Craft ink pads to create wonderful backgrounds and stamped images!

Let's get started!!


- Cut out a small rectangular window in a piece of white cardstock.
-I wanted to give it a "sea theme" hence opted for 2 shades of blue distress inks.
Blend them together by giving a darker shade at the bottom and lighter shade at the top.


-Sprint some small water droplets on the card and immediately lift it with a cloth/paper towel, to give it the bleached effect.
-Now the favourite part begins... stamp the sea shells with Tubby Craft Ink- Sapphire Blue at the base. 

-For the base card, cover it with another shade of ink/colour.
-Position the Pearl stamp along with the sentiment and stamp it using Tubby Craft Ink- Jet Black.
Adding the window, just gives your project some more dimension and 3D effect :D

-Foam mount the pieces...and you have a beautiful sea themed card.

-This will be a perfect card to gift your mother this Woman Day! :D

Now that we have found the pearl, lets find the remaining treasure ;)

-Cut the paper at the edges to give it an ancient, worn out map type of a look.
-Blend this cardstock with a brown ink.

- Stamp the TREASURE stamp and fussy cut it. Colour it with any medium you are comfortable with.
- Bend the sentiment in a semi-circle shape and stamp it
using Tubby Craft Ink- Jet Black.YES, you can bend these stamps in anyway you like to suit your need!

- Stamp the track using the stamp set from Adorable Runner, the bird from Talking Two and the Ship from Lift up Balloon.
All these stamps just completed the look flawlessly.

- Colour another cardstock base with yellow ink/colour.
- Foam mount the pieces..and find the treasure ;)

Hope you all loved these 2 different card inspirations for this february release.

Do leave your precious comments below and I will be back next week with 2 more cards using another stamp set from Feburary release!

Card 1:

Here's how I made it:
  • Stamp the cake image on a piece of white card stock of size 4" x 5 1/2"
  • Cut out masks of the rosette images, 1 for each. I used 2 shades of teal and 2 shades of grey to stamp the rosettes. Starting from the center, stamp the rosettes by changing the ink color amd masking the previously stamped ones.
  • Stamp the sentiment below the cake.
  • Color the image with markers. I used Copics - BG49, BR 15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal, C7, c5, C3 and C1 for the grey and YG68, Y38 and YR31 for the candle flame.
  • Adhere the white cardstock on to a grey card stock piece of size 4 1/4" by 5 1/2"
  • Adhere it on to a top folding A2 card base.
I love those paper rosette stamps. So pretty, aren't they?

Card 2:

Here's how I made it:
