Fired Up


This tutorial was written by me on May 11th, 2015 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5

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


PTU kit from BLT Dezignz called Fired Up. You can purchase it here.

Mask 575 by Trese. You can find it here.

Font of choice. I am using Marguerite.


Open Frame1. Resize by 80%, all layers unchecked. Now resize all layers by 93%.

With your magic wand tool, click inside your frame. Selections, modify, expand by 10. Open PP3. Paste as a new layer above your frame layer. Selections, invert & press delete. Deselect.

Lets add our elements:

Branch – resize by 50%. Paste above your frame layer, place to the left side so the arch in the branch follows the arch in the frame.
Flag – place to the upper right side of the frame.
Dragon2 – resize by 60%. Place in the middle of the frame.
Tag – resize by 60%. Place to the bottom.
JewelCluster – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom left.
Flower1 – resize by 30%. Place to the upper right side of the frame. Duplicate & place to the bottom of the jewel cluster.
Dragon – resize by 40%. Place to the right side of the frame.
Bottle – resize by 40%. Place to the bottom right.
Crystalball – resize by 50%. Place to the left side of the bottle.
Sword – resize by 40%, rotate right. Place to the bottom, slightly to the right.
Sparkle2 – resize by 72%. Center over the tag.
Sparkles – resize by 62%.

Open PP5 & your mask. On your mask, image, negative image.

Copy & paste your paper as a new layer onto your tag. Apply your mask, merge group. Now with your pick tool, carefully scale the mask layer down so it is slightly larger than the rest of your tag.

Add your name, copyright, & license info if using a ptu tube. Apply a drop shadow of choice.

Hide your mask layer. Then merge visible. Unhide your mask. On the mask layer, Objects, Align, center in canvas. Repeat for the tag layer. I also cropped the image so there wasn’t so much unused space in the tag.

Merge visible, then save as a PNG.

Thanks for checking out my tutorials.
