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 - Stampin' Saturday

Today's challenge is to stamp a background pattern the same color as the card stock.

As you all know I am a digital card maker using PaintShopPro as my tool for making the cards. So for this challenge I chose a pattern digi paper as my main card stock. I picked a color from that paper to apply a second layer of card stock and to this layer is where I stamped my background pattern. All and all the challenge has been met and my card is done!

Even though today is Card Making Day...I think I am going to take this beautiful fall day and go and rake some leaves. Maybe later I will come in and make some more cards. Enjoy your day making cards or what ever!
