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.

Simon Says and 365 Cards Challenge - Super Sunday

I was making this card for the Simon Says Challenge and realize that it will work for the 365 Card Sketch Challenge as well. Simon Says Challenge we are to use stitiching on the card and 365 Card challenge is a sketch.

Last night while surfing I came across a website full of tutorials for PSP and one of them was how to stitch in a shape. I was floored. Just what I needed. I had always wanted to try it but did not know where to start. Now I got it down pat! Yippee!! Both challenges have been met my card is done.

I fell a sleep last night before I could finish exploring the new found guess where I am going. You all enjoy your day. Check back later you may find some new cards that I just did for the fun of it all!
