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.

Digital Tuesday Challenge - Clean and Simple

Today's challenge is about clean and simple with a fall theme.

I have become hooked on the mosaic look. Not with the big pieces though. I like using the smaller pieces because it reminds me of the ashtray I made back in the day. The effect I get is really awesome to me. I have used it in two other cards and now this one...different colors used though. The digi stamp I download from PC Hugs. Even though this card was very simple to make. The mosaic background gives it a dramatic look. Dramatic but clean and simple.


  1. Wow that is a great technique and your turkey looks awesome. You nailed the fall colors perfectly.

  2. Fabulous card! I went the complete digital method as well...I wonder why people would knock you for it! That is so silly...everyone can do what they want of course :P Great job and keep it up!
