Her gorgeous creations have truly done justice to our products. We can't thank you enough to join us for this month and product launch.

Over to you dear..


This is Hussena here, and I am so happy to be guest designing this month at the Tubby Craft blog! I blog at Quill and Punch Works and you can find me on social media here:

Today, for my last guest post, I am sharing four envelopes I made using different stamp sets from Tubby Craft. I shared a card last time and thought it would be nice to work on money/shagun envelopes for my guest design post again. I really enjoyed making them, and hope you will like the idea too. I will share each envelope and the close-up pictures one by one.

I made all these envelopes primarily using two sets - Buttercup and Floral Peony. These sets have some beautiful floral images in them, and as you know, I am a big sucker for all things florals! I was pretty excited to work with these two sets for my post.

Let's start with the first one!

I made this envelope using the Floral Peony and Buttercup sets. I also used the newly launched Tubby Craft Aqua Blue and Lawn Green inks to watercolor my images.


The inks are very intense, and hence give a very vivid and bright color when coloring. I really loved working with them. I colored the small filler flowers from the Buttercup set using Imperial Red ink.


The sentiment stamp is also from the Floral Peony set. I also used the Light Pink ink to distress the oval frame and the sentiment banner to tie in everything together. I added Diamond Stickles on the edges of the banner and in the centres of the flowers to give it some sparkle and shine.


The flowers were heat embossed on Strathmore Watercolor paper, and Tubby Craft inks blend beautifully on this paper. You can see the embossed lines clearly in the picture below. I also added few berries to my foliage to complete my floral arrangement.



The second envelope I made today has loads of fussy-cutting and colouring on it. Here's a look at my envelope:


For this one, I again used the same sets - Buttercup and Floral Peony. I stamped, heat embossed, and coloured my images and then fussy cut them. These two sets really go along well with each other, and can be combined to create a variety of clusters.  I used the Imperial Red, Hot Pink and Light Pink inks for coloring the red flowers, and Lawn Green ink for the leaves.  The blue flowers were coloured using the Aqua Blue ink.


To finish off my envelope, I stamped a sentiment from the Fancy Sentiments set and fussy cut it so that it would fit onto the lace-y die-cut in the background. I added few enamel dots and Diamond Stickles on the flowers to complete the look.



My third envelope is also pretty much along the same lines as the second one. I even used the same pattern paper on it. :)

I repeated the same process that I did for the second envelope - I stamped, heat embossed, coloured and fussy cut the peony and the smaller flowers from the Floral Peony and Buttercup sets respectively. I just changed the die cut and the sentiment this time.

The peony flower was watercoloured using a mix of Imperial Red, Hot Pink, and Light Pink inks, while the leaves were coloured using the Lawn Green ink. The small blue flowers on the extreme left were coloured using the Aqua Blue ink. I distressed the sentiment banner using the Light Pink ink. I also added few black enamel dots to pull in everything together and my envelope was done!


Finally the last envelope for today! Phew! I hope I haven't bored you. :P I tried to keep this one very simple with minimum embellishments.

I love how the inks look when they are watercolored. They are so vibrant and are excellent for watercoloring, distressing, ink blending, and stamping. I combined the Floral Peony and Buttercup sets for this one as well. I added few leaves coloured using the Lawn Green ink and some sprigs cut from Gold Mirror cardstock to complete my envelope.
