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 - Make a Mosaic

Today's challenge is all about using a mosaic someplace on the card. Sounds like fun. This will be something new for me to try in PSP.

I have a packet of coordinating digi papers called Cuddlebeez Afternoon Break. The papers were a free download from
The digi stamp was sent to me so I am not sure where it came from. I painted the image with colors from the papers, except for the shirt, I flood filled it with a pattern from one of the papers, all done in PSP. The mosaic background was made using several of the papers. I decided to go small on the tiles because it help the other elements to blend better. Challenge card is done!


  1. You are sooooo good with that PSP. Loved the card
