Two of my favorite things to use when stamping are Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. It gives a nice, clean look to a card and it also takes some of the work away from choosing matching cardstock colors. On the base of this card, the leaf pattern was stamped with the Versamark and the squirrel was embossed with the clear powder. Of course, I think it's hard to go wrong with a cute squirrel stamp... just ask my friends. They'll tell you I have a weakness for cute animal stamps.
