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.

365 Card Challenge - Colors Scheme

Today's challenge is a color will find the required colorshere.

Because Torendi means trendy in Japanese and Torendi is the host for this week at 365 Cards I decide to go with a Japanese theme on this card...using the chosen colors of course. I have several Kimono sewing patterns in my stash, so I thought I would use an image of one as my focal point.

I decided to create my own digi paper for today's challenge using the required colors...that is another thing I like about PSP, it allows me to create. The challenge has been met, my card is done.


  1. LOVE this....huge fan of anything with an asian flair :)

  2. This is very pretty. You are so talented with the digi creations.
