You may remember almost 2 years ago I shared some Quilt Cards (here and here) that I created with Stampin' Up! punches and designer paper.  I truly treasure all the quilts I have from my grandmother, great grandmother and great aunts and loved using them for inspiration in my designs. So, I decided to create a "grandmother's garden" type quilt with My Digital Studio and the Hexagon Punch in MDS. 

My Digital Studio Hexagon Punch Quilt Cards

This is the "card front" that I created in My Digital Studio using the "paper fill" function and the Hexagon Punch MDS download.. I printed 4 on a page on my color HP laser printer and used them as card fronts.

Then I ran the printed pieces through the Big Shot with different embossing folders to make them look kind of quilted or like fabric.

Doesn't the cloud embossing folder (#127022) look kind of like stitching?

I also tried the Elegant Lines embossing folder (#119277), and added a Paper Doily #129399, and a flower from the Artisan Embellishment kit #129328 on top of a Floral Framelits diecut #127012.

 I added a small piece of hexagon printed DSP from the Tea for Two pack #129311 at the bottom of the card

Isn't it amazing how the embossing folder makes it look like it's really quilted!?

Oh my gosh,these cards are so beautiful! I had MDS before but never did anything like this. Maybe I'll have to try it again. :)
I love your blog!


Those are amazing quilted cards. I love the designs and colors you chose. I am still trying to figure out my MDS. When I have time, I will also try again.

The third card reminds me so much of a quilt my grandma made my parents, that my mom used a lot when I was little! The colors and patterns are spot on! :)

Jeri Cyr

AMAZING! Now I have to go and buy the punch in MDS!

Rosemarie Diehl

Gorgeous quilted cards, Patty! I love the texture you added with the embossing folders, too!


These cards are fabulous! You could use the hex embossing folder on dsp and cut them out and do the same...fantastic! Thanks!

I'm sure these are more beautiful in real life, than on line; I, too have some valued/vintage quilts, that hold a special place in my heart; your cards are stunning, much like your flower garden pictures; TFS!


I love the way you used MDS for this project. Quilts are amazing, aren't they. Your cards turned out beautifully.

Your quilt projects are so beautiful. Wish I had known you could do something like this earlier as I had to design a quilt-related program for our church's annual Spring Brunch. This would have been perfect! Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us Patty.


I'm a quilter as well as a stamper, so these are just breathtaking to me, Patty! Does your mind ever stop working? What a brilliant idea!

Dale Morin

These are so beautiful! I am going to have to try to do one. TFS
