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.

Thinking of You

This is a card I created for a challenge at Cardmaking and Paper Craft The papers I used for this card are from a ColorBok packet that i scanned into my computer...that way I can used them over and over and re-size them without waste and keeping the packet intact. The butterfly is from a clear stamp that I also scanned into my software program as a brush. Creating the card digitally allows for me to be able to make changes if needed and also to print as many times as i like without the added cost.
