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.

What are Digi Stamps?

You may be wondering what digi stamps are. I
know when I first hear the term I did not know.

Digi stamps are mostly very high quality black
and white images that you can get free on the
internet or you can purchase them.

Why would any one want to have a digi stamp? Well
the price is cost effective. Storage is simple.

Most people download the stamp, print it off and
then color it. Well to me that has one to many
steps. I figure I would color them using one of
the image manipulation programs, like PSP or PS.

I have not done this before so I need to practice.
Below are some of the results.
