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.

Best Wishes

I made it back from my vacation in one piece...I had a great time in Charleston...plan to make a return trip real soon.

The challenge for Deedee's digis is a sketch challenge. I came across an actual stamp that I purchase during my cut and paste days. It is one of those clear stamps...the thing about clear stamps is that they are usually stuck to a piece of paper with a silhouette of the image underneath the stamp...well if the stamp is removed carefully that image can be used as a digi stamp once scan into the computer.

I like this stamp a lot...if you look at it very closely you can see several different images in one.

The Sketch


  1. beautiful card! I love the colors and can't believe it is all digi. Well done! thanks for playing at Crafting with Deedee's Digis.

  2. That's gorgeous, Jaggs! Such a neat image, and how inventive of you to make your own digi in that way! Your digital skills always amaze me. Thanks so much for playing with us at Crafting with Deedee's Digis! :-)
