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.

Stamp Something - Favorite Color or Paper

The challenge over at Stamp Something is to decide on your favorite color or paper. My favorite paper is the one I make from using the mosaic texture effect in PSP. I get a image that I like the colors in and then apply the mosaic texture to it. The effect is WOW!!

The picture I choose for this card is called Bellagio glass flowers. I found the picture a while back while surfing the net. I thought the colors in the picture were awesome and decided to save it. I am so glad I did. I had a stamp of tweety bird and decided to use it as my image. All and all I think the card turned out great and I
plan to send it to a day dreamer friend of mine.
