I'm not good enough at explaining things to tell you how to use styles but I will say that if you would take the time to learn to use them, you will be amazed at all you can do with them. I refuse to confess how many styles I have (LOTS) but I use them for so many different things. It is so much faster than doing everything manually. You can find styles for creating drop shadows, holes for stitching, inked edges. You can also find metal styles, glitter, plastic, paper, texture, vellum, fabric, the list goes on and on.
If you want to experiment with some freebie ones, a good resource is Adobe.com. They have an exchange there with tons of freebies (styles, brushes, shapes, etc.).
