I can't think of one off-hand that I would know how to post, but here's an example: Let's say you were going to make a Christmas sweater. The background is all red. On it you put some plain ornaments--straight intarsia. On this sweater you also want to make a decorated Christmas tree. The green of the tree would be considered intarsia because you would stop the red yarn from the sweater on one side of the tree and restart it on the other. However, since the decorations on the tree are close together, you would strand them across without attaching a new piece of yarn for each one. Does that make sense?
