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.

Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge 10

For this challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps
we were given a sketch to interpret. I just
did one similar to this for another challenge.
I did not want to use the same one because it
is so much fun coming up with ideas.

When I looked at the sketch I thought of window
panes and decided to go with that idea. I have
yet to do my Christmas card and thought this
would be an ideal challenge.

I found a Christmasy image on the net and went
with it. Using Psp I developed a window pane,
drapes, and snow. Put it all together and came
up with the image below.


  1. OOO... how pretty,Jaggs! This is very well done! Love your drapes and window pane! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Peachy Keen Stamps. :) KathyJ
