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.

Harvest the Joy

This card qualifies for 3 challenges:
Cards for Men...transport (the wheelbarrow)
Crafting with Deedee's Digis...Sharing goodies
Mojo Monday...sketch which you will find here

I really enjoyed putting this one together. Have to give props where they are due...
all the digi stamps came from pcCrafter's and were illustrated by Carolee Jones. The background is actually five strips of digi paper. I don't remember where the raffia digi image came from.


  1. What a wonderful Autumn card you have here! Such a lovely little bunch of pumpkins - so festive! Thanks for sharing this with us this week at Deedee's Digis!

  2. This is such a warm and wonderful invitation. Love all the fall images and patterns, and they are so beautifully colored. I'm sure somebody is going to be thrilled to get this (and not just because of the dinner and pie!) Thanks so much for playing along with us at Crafting with Deedee's Digis this week! :-)

  3. What a beautiful invitation! Thanks for joining our transport challenge at Cards for Men.
    Hugs, Alison x
