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.

S2G - Twisted Thursday

This is my favorite time of the year especially when the weather acts right. I live in NC near the BlueRidge Mountains. This time of the year the leaves colors have changed and are floating in the sun. The crunch I hear as I walk among them. I said all that to say that is what inspired me for this card.

This card is for the S2G sketch challenge (which you will find here) with a twist...and for today the twist is to use Kraft paper on your project. Now I know what kraft paper is...I just did not know it was consider a color. Any way the challenge has been met, my card is complete.
