I have never had an issue cutting my SU paper with my cricut. I might have had to set my blade to more pressure but an easy fix!!!! I tear less and get better images with my SU paper. I don't really like white cores either.

I love using Stampin' Up! cardstock, too. Their colors coordinate with the ink I use for my stamping and the paper quality is excellent.

For a long time I went with DCWV, but then I bought a Cricut and had the same problem mentioned above with the Cricut. something about the texture or something. Now I mostly go with Bazzill.

Bazill seems like the paper of choice for most people...I like the textured papers too, but was afraid of cuts that aren't clean. The DCWV cardstock I am using (OP) is white core, and its nice for tearing to see the white show, but def don't like it for diecuts. Thanks all!!

Bazzill. Then American Crafts.

I used to like the SU textured cardstock but they stopped making it.

I realized today that I want smooth cardstock with no texture most of the time. The reason - I use it for background and I make mats out of it and I often want my journaling paper to coordinate so I cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet to go in the printer. The Bazzil and other textured brands don't print well and I really like my journaling paper to match mats and things.

I forgot about that until today when I ruined a title that I wanted on matching cardstock. Now I remember why I like smooth!

DCWV by far! and Bazzil too. I rarely use anything else. With the DCWV, even use it to stamp on and colour it with Copics for me Magnolia stamps.... its wonderful!

I can't imagine coloring with copics on anything but Cryogen or Xpress card stock. I'm glad you get good results with the DCW.

I have a Pazzles Inspiration which will but pretty much anything, so I don't really pay too much attention to the brand of paper I cut. I am mainly a card maker and right now my paper of choice is PTI and A Muse Studio. I very rarely get 12x12 and it's usually DCWV because it's easy to get locally and I love the texture and the white core. I've been reading really good things about Bazzill Card Shoppe, so I've been haunting sb.com hoping to find a variety pack to try out...

Xpress card stock all the way for coloring with copics! Favorite card stock would probably be Bazzill and CM.

I like Bazzil, but for cutting in the silhouette AC works great and its a solid core
