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.

Digital Tuesday Challenge - Color

Orange is the color for this challenge...well actually Kraft,orange is. Not sure what that is so I will go with just plain ole orange.

The challenge has been met (I think), my card has been created.

Okay...Lora from Digital Tuesday was kind enough to explain to me what color is Kraft in her comment on my card. Now that I do know I decide to post a second card using the proper colors. My color of choice is the golden yellow. Thank you Lora.


  1. Another beautiful card Jaggs. I love your sketch and the vibrant colors. Thank you so much for joining us at digital tuesday!

  2. This is stunning, I love the image and use of colours. Thanks for joining us at Digital Tuesday. Suzie x

  3. Beautiful card again this week. Kraft is a kind of paper that is brown, kinda like a paper bag. I didn't have any so just used a piece of an old brown envelope on my card. I know that you can get digi kraft like papers though but can't remember where I saw them.
    Don't wory about not using it though, it's just a bit of fun after all, and I used about 5 colours this week for my DT card instead of 3 lol. I know you only really do digi stuff now but if you are interested in winning some rubber stamps and other crafting goodies, I have a candy giveaway on my blog just now ;)
