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.

The Best Kind of Friend

For the Sherrod Studio challenge this week it was asked that you use a sentiment as the focal point on your card and A Spoon Full of Sugar wants punches. I faded a picture for the background so it would not stand out and the sentiment was placed over the picture. The frame was punched from a sheet of digi paper and then a small heart was punched out of one corner. After all that I colorize a bow to match the frame and place it on the opposite corner of the heart.


  1. Beautiful Jaggs! I love how you used the faded picture behind your sentiment!

  2. Forgot to thank you for sharing with us at TT this week. :)
