I am trying to set up a custom domain for my tumblr account.

http://blog.scribeair.com/ to http://scribeair.tumblr.com

Can some one help me how to set up the DNS records for the subdomain.

You can create a cname in your dns record so that blog.scribeair.com references scribeair.tumblr.com

Setup blog.scribeair.com as an A-record pointing toward Use http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains as a reference.
