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.

Merry Christmas Dear FRIEND

I am really excited about this card I did for two challengesThe Color Dare challenge. The colors for this challenge are Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Cherry Cobbler,and Garden Green and the Simon Says Challenge which is the theme Holiday Fun. The reason why I am so excited I taught myself a new technique using PSP. I saw the easel cards others had made and I really liked the look, but what I didn't know was how to recreate the look digitally using PSP until now...yippee! Knowing I should be sewing...I worked on it until I got what I thought was the look. What do you think?
