Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today is the Creation Station Gingham Style blog hop! And you guessed it, we’re playing with Gingham Gala designer paper.


Creation Station Gingham Style Blog Hop Header


The cards I’m sharing with you today are created in three styles.

You’ll notice how easy it is to move from one level to the next

by adding little details.


  • beginner/simple stamping: quick, easy projects needing limited supplies; clean and simple cards;
  • casual stamping: takes a little more time, uses some tools, more embellishments, creations for an occasion;
  • avid stamping: more time, techniques, tools, whatever it is, I want to do it!

After stamping the sentiment, stamp some of the

Flowering Desert foliage to create a frame.

Tip: Take a moment to bend the stamp on the block

so the pieces with hang in the way you want them to.

Add a flower top and bottom.

Then, accent with a Glitter Enamel Dot.
