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.

Double Challenge

I crossed over and did a little shabby chic for this challenge. It is a double challenge for Simon Says and The Color Dare. Simon Says challenge is to give thanks in some way...make a Thanksgiving theme card or a thank you card. The Color Dare challenge is colors of course and you will find them here.

I found some torn mulberry paper and tattered brown paper in my digi paper stash that I thought would work. I decided to create a piece of white ribbon so now I had all the colors from the required list. To bring it all together, in PSP pattern papers I found a pattern with almost all the reqiured colors the brown was not quit right, after a little this and that it became perfect.

I have met the challenge and my card is done.
