Punch tool sketches must be created on a part face (or on a worklplane created from part face geometry).

Cannot use the Origin planes.

 

You don't want the punch to have any dependencies other than the sketch point and sketch face of the source for locating the feature on the destination part.

 

Turn off autoproject edges and be careful about an projections you use (try not to use any other than maybe from sketch-to-sketch within the punch.
