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.

Friday Sketchers and Simmon Says Stamp

Today is Friday and it is time for a new sketch over at Friday Sketchers, but you know what I think this card is good enough to use for Simmon Says Stamp Challenge as well.

Over at Simon Says it is a recipe challenge and the ingredients are as follows: Use 3 embellishments, 2 papers, and 1 image. I have an elements packet that I download from that I think will do nicely. The image is a faerie stamp that I received as a prize for best card in a challenge from Faerie Song Artist Stamps Group over at PCP.

The card has the sketch as it's base and all the ingredients from the recipe. I do believe the challenges have been met and the card is done.
