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.

I have this water color print from years ago that I thought depict the colors of autumn very well which is the challenge for this week over at Charisma Cardz Challenge. I scanned the print into my computer to use for this challenge. I hope I didn't break any rules by doing so. I can't read the name of the artist otherwise I would mention it here. I am also using this card for Cute Card Thursday which the challenge is to make your own. It does not matter what you have made. For me it is the circle punches and the sentiment.
