Hey everybody...I was wondering...what is your favorite cardstock and why?

For those of you who use copics and stamps a lot...do you have a particular type of cardstock you use only for that?

Thanks for your help!

I only use CTMH. It is a nice medium weight, white core. I use it for both cards and scrapbook pages. It cuts well in the cricut too.
I do a ton of stamping, but don't use copics yet.

Bazzill for all my pages:)

American Crafts Cardstock for diecutting on the Silhouette--it is awesome on any electronic diecutting machine and does not burn up blades like Bazzill does. I also like Color Mates but can't find it anywhere.

Bazzill Coconut Swirl (I think that is the name) and Neenah Cardstock from the office supply store are my faves for Copic.

I love bazzill-great texture and colors.

But for distressing I love using the core'dinations, the dual color really adds to the texture.

I like Recollections, especially for card bases, and I buy it in packs at M's,,,,it's quite sturdy, and even seems to be holding up to copics,,,,I'll probably get better for stamping and using copics on, but for everyday, love the stuff!!!!!! I wish it came in more colors though,,,,,,I buy Paper Co cs for other colors,,,,not as good, but great for normal scrapping,,,,,

Gina K's Pure Luxury 120 lb cardstock for my Copics. Amazingggg paper-so smooth and the Copics don't bleed thru. They are like little sheets of Heaven =)

Bazzill Smoothie seems to work for copics. I've also used 65 lb. smooth cardstock from the office supply store (in 8.5 x 11)that works great!

For coloring with Copics, I've used Gina K 120lb paper too (bought direct from the website), but mostly I use the C.C. Designs Copic Quality Cardstock, which is also 120lb weight.

For regular scrapping and cardmaking I use Bazzill, DCWV, and The Paper Company. Whatever's handy, really.

I'm a Bazzill girl all the way, but I confess that I don't do much stamping or coloring with Copics.

Love CTMH for scrapbooking and cards...it works ok with copics (in my limited experience) but is not as smooth as I would like and the ink "bleeds" just a little if you are not careful near the edge of your stamp. (But that could just be a beginner mistake on my part.)

Die Cuts with a view cardstock is my favorite! they have such wonderful colors, and they are really sturdy. plus, I buy lots of stacks, so the colors match perfectly.
