Kiss My Irish Ass


This tutorial was written by me on February 26th, 2014 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5 but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.


Tube of choice. I am using the art of Misticheskaya. You can purchase her tubes here.

PTU Kiss My Irish Ass by Freek’s Creations. You can purchase it here.

Template #3 by Sweet Temptations. You can find it here.

ST Patty’s Mask 1 by Tonya for the Creative Misfits. You can find it here.

Font of choice. I am using Jasmine UPC.


PhotoEffex Scanlines


Open your template & mask. Minimize mask for now.

On your template, set the canvas size to 900 x 650. Resize all layers by 67%. Delete the credits layer.

Open Paper 5. Copy & paste as a new layer just above the background layer. Apply your mask, merge group.

Add the papers to the template layers from bottom to top:

Rectangle White – Paper 6
Rectangle Pink – Paper 3
Circle 1 & 2 – Paper 2
Shape 1, 2, & 3 – Paper 4
Rectangle White – Paper 6
Rectangle Pink – Paper 11

Now let’s add the elements, from bottom to top:

Kissmark – resize by 20%; place over the top left corner of Paper 11.
Lights – resize by 79%; place so the lights hang halfway across Paper 11.
Cupcake – resize by 30%; place to the bottom left.
Bow – resize by 25%; rotate slightly to the left & place to the top left, covering the end of the lights. Duplicate, flip horizontal, and place over the end of the lights on the right side.
Hat – resize by 25%; place to the bottom right.
Bouquet – resize by 30%; place towards the top.
Button – resize by 20%; place to the bottom left side of the cupcake.
Flask – resize by 20%; place to the right side of the cupcake.
Whiskey – resize by 25%; place to the right side of the hat.
Stamp – resize by 20%; place to the bottom of the hat, rotate slightly to the right.
Shoe – resize by 25%; place over the cupcake.

Sparkles – resize by 69%.
WordArt – resize by 79%; place to the bottom.
Flower2 – resize by 30%; flip horizontal and place to the bottom along the text, just before the text loop.

Now to add your tube layers:

Open your tube and place over Paper 11. Duplicate and arrange the 2 tubes over this layer. Merge the tube layers. On Paper 11 layer, select all, float, defloat. On the merged tubes layer, selections, invert and press delete. Deselect.

Duplicate the tubes layer, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen.

On the original layer, PhotoEffex Scanlines using the default settings. Set the blend mode for this layer to Luminance(L), opacity 60.

Just above the sparkles layer, paste your tube again. Flip horizontal and resize as necessary. Place slightly to the right. Duplicate, gaussian blur using the same settings as before. Set the blend mode to Screen, opacity 75.

Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers.

Hide your mask layer. With one of the layers above the mask layer highlighted, merge visible. Objects, align, Center In Canvas. Unhide your mask layer and merge visible again.

Add your name, copyrights, and license info. Drop shadow on your name. Merge visible and save as a PNG.
