About Me

Hi! My name is Sara Levin, aka The Artful Inker.  For years my friends have been calling me an “artist”. In my head, I’m just a girl who creates cards and other things with stamps, ink and paper.  They say, “call yourself a collage artist.”  I think, “okay, I’ve made collages since elementary school and cards are a kind of collage.”

My dad and I were always trying out some new craft as I grew up.  There are days when I’m creating and he is very present.  I think he would be amused (in a good way) that this is the way I spend my days. My love for creating led me to Stampin’ Up!

My Stampin’ Up! store allows me to provide you with high quality products so you can join my creative endeavors. I have a wandering eye and limited attention span.  So, I’m constantly looking for new design trends, trying new styles and imagining new types of projects that can be created with paper, stamps and ink.

Doing something creative is balm for the soul. Whatever your creative needs, I’m here to help.  Creating can be both a social or private activity.  And, the items you create can be for yourself or to share with others.  Spending some time exploring your creativity (and yes, everyone can be creative) can make you even more creative and productive in other parts of your life.

I want to be your creative catalyst.  So, I share what I know and continue to learn through my journey with daily samples, regularly scheduled classes, kits, tutorials and videos.  If you don’t see what you would like to learn/try, just ask!!

Come join me and let your creativity flow!!


Thank you so much for all your help.  Your kindness is so much appreciated. I had such a good time and feel so much better that things are on the move. I loved working with you and really enjoyed your talent.  I had an idea of what I wanted and what I like and I felt so good that you were working with me to feel out my ideas.  I was afraid there would not be choices I would like.  I love what I picked.  I like the fact that I could use my creative edge!
I just can’t thank you both enough!

“I have used Sara’s cards on a few occasions and I have been amazed each time by the craftsmanship and attention to detail. She provided creative feedback to my ideas and created a custom look that was perfect for our needs. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for truly world class one of a kind cards.”

“The Artful Inker has made all three of our children’s bnei mitzvah invitations. Each one has been personalized in consultation with the child, and each has had a different style. All three have been wonderful and elicited admiring comments from friends and family who received them. Sara is a true professional who is a pleasure to work with, and her creations are beautiful, stylish, and fun. We recommend The Artful Inker.”

    Sara, I would love to find out how to make a card just like the one you posted for Easter. Where can I find instructions to make that beautiful card?

      Patricia ~ I will try to have a tutorial ready the first of the week. Today, the light isn’t cooperating for photographs.

    Please leave a comment, I love to hear what you have to say!
