I didn't mean to make you feel bad. I bought stamps too because I had seen them used on cupcakes on Flickr, then came home and got on Cake Central and read that I couldn't use them after all
But they do make nice designs on cake boards, like this:
I painted over the impressions with silver airbrush paint, with a regular paintbrush, then wiped the excess off with a paper towel. Easiest thing ever!
And those scrapbook stamps are fine to use, from what I've read. Michaels has them in their dollar bins sometimes and so does Joanns, and they go on sale a lot. There are some really neat ones.
