Punch Art Dog

This was one of my cards I presented at stamp camp this past weekend. I was inpired by a punch art dog I saw on pinterest a couple of weeks ago.

You can see her dog here. I set out to make a dog with SU punches as it reminded me of my Sisters dog Minty (who is an Old English sheepdog/Springer cross) and I was really pleased how it came out! Ive done step by step instruction below and you can also download a PDF of this tutorial here… Black Dog Punch Art Card.

The background  is not shown but you can get the gist of it Im sure. Ive just included on this post how to do the fence post which is not in the PDF.

Okay here we go..
Supplies Needed:
1 ¾ “Scallop circle punch
Scallop Oval punch
Boho Blossoms punch
Heart to heart punch
Cupcake Builder punch
1/16 Handheld punch
Black and white Cardstock
White gel pen
Black pen
Scallop Oval punch
Large Oval punch
Postage Stamp punch
1” Circle punch
Heart to Heart punch
1/16 Handheld punch
Patterned Paper
Confetti White, Pool party and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
Petite Pairs stamp set


1. Punch out 2 black scallop ovals and one black scallop circle. Cut off 5 scallops off the circle bottom. Adhere the two scallop ovals together as shown.
2. If you want a skinnier ear then you will need to repunch like this. (tip- adhere scallop to bottom of your grid paper with snail or dotto and repunch so that it doesn’t move or you get your fingers punched as well lol)










3. Punch out white circle scallop and cut off as shown





4. Position as shown.





5. Punch out white scallop oval for the muzzle and adhere to grid paper and repunch as shown.
6. Stack dimentionals onto the back of muzzle and adhere to scallop oval and scallop circle (adhering them altogether).
7. Add small heart from heart to heart punch. I used a ¼ of a dimentional to pop it up.







8. Punch out flowers from Boho blossom punch and cut as shown. Adhere to top of scallop ovals ears with dimentionals.




9. Cut two apples from black cardstock and cut off stem. Adhere to bottom of white scallop circle.

10. Finishing touches- Punch out two white eyes using 1/16 punch and adhere all as shown below. Add white gel pen to nose and paws and use a Black marker pen to do the eyes and the mouth and youre done!

Now to do the Fence, I used the postage stamp and repunched it like this

I then cut out strips (leftovers) for the railings and used the 1/16 inch punch for the nails. The grass was just hand cut. The kennel is just a square and then two strips of white cardstock up to a gable. I then cut off the bits showing from the square. I used the large oval for the door. The background was sponged in Pool party to get the clouds but my sponging needs some work! Im tempted to redo but I guess you gotta have a mistake somewhere right?
Now I’m happy to share this PDF with anyone and everyone but please have some manners and link back to my website if you do show on your website. Thank you.

Okay come back tomorrow for another card using up my scraps that I presented at our recent Creative Inkers stamp camp!
