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.

Copic Buzz Challenge #14

I came across this challenge while surfing. It is a color challenge and the colors are gray and black. You are to use the colors on the card. Another requirement is to use a stamp by the sponser which is Sassy Design Studio. Needless to say I do not own a stamp by the sponser digital or other wise. Lucky for me a digi stamp is provided as a free download. The stamp is title Witchy Cameo.

I decided to give it a try. I used some embellishments from called nightmare. I started out by using a gray and black stripe background just to get that out of the way. Then I proceeded to paint the image. Challenge has been met my card is now done.


  1. She is absolutely beautiful. I love how well you did the skin tone and her eyes are awesome. What a great card. What copic marker colors did you use. Please stop by at Copic Buzz and share your copic colors for her skin tones.

  2. You did an outstanding job on this card. The coloring you used with the Paint Shop is amazing.

  3. I guess if I had read your profile I would have seen you used Paintshop. Wow. I am still amazed. I wish I could use my Photoshop Elements Paint that well.
