Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

365 Card Challenge - Sporty Saturday

Today's challenge we were required to use some
type of ball on the card. Well that sounds easy
enough. I checked my clip art for images of balls.
I found a few. I chose a couple I could work with.
I have a basketball, now I wanted a basketball hoop
without the ball. Found it!

I like the picture of the hoop so I added one
large image to my card and 2 small images. Looks
good. Now I need to add the ball so it looked
like it was going into the net. Got it! Now for
some text. Found the text I wanted. I wanted
it to look like it was cut from the basketball.
Now a little more embellishment, that should do it!
