I scrap-lifted this card from the Seasonal Expressions 2 book. It provided the perfect opportunity to use my new mini-stapler and thistle twine. Win, win.

Isn't this pretty? One of my favorite techniques is 2nd generation stamping. If you're not familiar, take a look at the flowers I stamped. Do you see how there are 2 different orange flowers? The darker flower was created by stamping once (like you normally would), but the lighter shade was achieved by stamping a second time before cleaning my stamp on the scrubber. It's a great way to stretch your craft dollars when you're trying to build up your tool inventory, such as ink pads.
Have a wonderful day.
