For this Fabulous Friday, the Sisters In Stamping designers are sharing punch art!  Woohoo!  Punch art is really so much fun – some designs are complex, and others are simplistic.  Regardless of the effort, they are sure to wow.

I created this fun card for my dear father-in-law.  His birthday is this month and I knew that Grumpy, his favorite, of the Seven Dwarfs would be perfect for him.  I got the idea for this card from fellow punch artist, Ellen Kemper, and her blog post here where she shows off all seven of these cute little faces!  The sentiment from Happy Birthday, Everyone (a hostess stamp set) was just the right fit to balance out this this card.

Here is a good close-up of  my Grumpy.  You can see all the different punches I used in the product listing below, but as you can see his face is mostly circles and ovals layered on top of each other.  His nose was created with the wing from the Bird Builder Punch.  His eyebrows, which is the feature that really sets him apart from the other dwarfs, were from another oval punch but then cut to shape.  His body is the owl image from the Owl Builder Punch – the red for his shirt and the brown for his legs.

His arms are from the Sweetheart Punch, but ovals would work here as well.  The layers were applied using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I then drew in details for his mouth, shirt patches, and legs/knees using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  Here are all the items used for this project:
