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.

He's Not Heavy

When I saw the challenge for Charisma Cardz and Cute Card Thursday I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Charisma Cardz is a sketch challenge and Cute Card Thursday is about tweet and a fluttery (add a bird or butterfly)...I decided to combine them. Once again I chose to use digi images from my pcCrafters collection and digi papers and embellishments from SummerDriggs Happiness collection. I wanted to use a pink paper background under the image but the collection only contain a blue so I used PSP to change the paper to pink. It worked out perfectly. The staples I used to hold the tags on were created in PSP as well. Cute!
