What kind of paper do you use?
I found this 25% cotton watercolor paper that is smooth enough for stamping and resiliant enoughf for painting. It is a 75 sheet pad of 90# (it seems thicker than a 90# carstock but thin enough to go through your printer) and it is cheap too! I love it for stamping, for painting I use Arches but this is just the thing for stamping!
