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.

Peachy Keen Stamps

Wow it has been awhile since I created a card for this site. The challenge for this week is kind of a recipe.
Make a card
Use the colors PINK AND BROWN as the main color scheme.
Use a stamped image (preferably Peachy Keen Stamp - but not required)
Incorporate a piece of ribbon
Use some type of glitter (stickles are fine!)

The glitter on the wings did not show as I would have like it to, however I do believe the challenge has been met. My card is complete.
