Crafts from my heart to yours!

Duckie Punch Art


Duckie Punch Art

Continuing with my new fav craft, punch art, I will be posting some of my spring punch art.  I can’t say this duck is an original idea, in fact I looked extensively on-line before I started my project, but it combines the best of all of the great ideas I found and added a few unique touches of my own!

I like this craft because it gives you so much more range of die cuts than simply using your punches alone.

My ducky used a lot of different punches so you probably won’t have all of them – the challenge with punch art is to make the project with the punches you have on-hand.  So let me know what you used to create your masterpiece!

Punches Used

  • 2 inch circle punch (body)
  • 1 inch oval punch (remove piece from body)
  • 1.5 inch circle punch (head)
  • 1 inch daisy punch (feathers)
  • 1 inch folk heart punch (beak & feet)
  • 1 inch cloud punch (wing)
  • Regular circle punch (eye)
  • Zig-zag chain punch (water)
  • Small circle punches:  ½, 1, 1.5 & 1¾ inch (bubbles)

Paper Used

  • Yellow cardstock
  • Orange cardstock
  • Light blue cardstock
  • Black cardstock

Also Needed

  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • White paint
  • Small piece of natural sponge

Instructions

To start off with you will need two graduated circle punches.  As long as you have a “large” circle punch and another that is about one half an inch smaller you can make a ducky “easy-peasy”.  Lots of punches other than the cloud can be used to make the wing; a small heart leaps to mind.  A tiny heart can also be used to make the beak and feet.  Cute duck feet can also be made from a small flower punch.

  1. Sponge paint the blue cardstock with the white paint and sponge to create a lacey effect for the bubbles.
  2. Punch all shapes needed.  You will also need one additional punch of each shape punched from black to create a 3D effect.
  3. Glue black punches on each colored shape.
  4. Remove unneeded portions of the punches.  Use a small oval punch to remove a piece of the duck’s back.  I don’t have one the size I needed so I grabbed my Stampin Up bird punch and used the wing to make the “divot”.
  5. Glue punches together.
  6. Layout your scrapbook page or homemade card and enjoy!
