Default Who makes Woodgrain cardstock?

I have seen quite a few cards recently made with various colours of woodgrain cardstock and I really love how it looks. I know that Ellen Hutson has her own brand of woodgrain cs but to ship it to Australia would be incredibly expensive because of the weight as it is sold as a 10 pack. Does anyone know of another brand of woodgrain cardstock that looks similar? HERE is link to Ellen's cs so you know what I am looking for.

Lawn Fawn has just launch it as part of their sweater weather line.

Might be easier to buy a cover a card stamp and do your own than keep sourcing card. http://www.iostamps.com/2CAC/CC034.html those are 14.06 cm x 14.06 cm Just saw shipping. Maybe a shop in Australia carries their line and can source it.

You could also get a woodgrain embossing folder if you want the texture.

I think Darice has several wood grain embossing folders that are nice. One has a finer "grain" than the other.

Thanks so much for your responses ladies. I have a woodgrain embossing folder but the embossing is really deep and I really wanted the subtlety of the woodgrain cardstock that I had seen. I think maybe a stamp might be the way to go: I honestly hadn't even thought about using a woodgrain stamp!

Here is a chart of various colors of wood grain I found on Pinterest a while ago. Different ink colors on different paper colors using a wood grain stamp.

Somewhere...YouTube, Pinterest, here...I saw a tutorial where the lady used brown and then white ink pads direct to brown paper pulling the pads down the paper to get a wood grain effect that looked really good.

The Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder gives a really nice texture...and it's not the deep lines that so many others are.

Oh, that's awesome - thank you so much!

And thanks Joan for the link - this is exactly the look that I am after. I will see if they have a distributor in Australia

Thanks everyone for your responses.

Stampin Up and PTI both have very pretty woodgrain stamps that will give you a realistic look.

Lawn Fawn has a woodgrain stamp that gives a cute, hand drawn look:

Looks like you have a lot of good suggestions already for cardstock, embossing folders, and stamps. One more suggestion...if you used a stamp and heat embossed your cardstock, it would be pretty close to the cardstock in terms of subtlety.

Jocelyn, Stampin' Up does have demonstrators in Australia! You should be able to find one on your website. Then you won't have to pay shipping from the US. SU's Hardwood background stamp is AWESOME and it's the same one shown on the Paper Caper website with all those different colors. It also looks fabulous in pink, blue, green, any color you can imagine!

Here is a card that I made with SU's woodgrain BG stamp:
Hardwood Sympathy by RJP111 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
I stamped the image in versamark then heat embossed it with clear powder, and then I sponged in the color. The card had a nice texture

I love that the amuse studio woodgrain comes in 3 different colors, including red - which is great at Christmas.

I recently acquired a SU Demonstrator so I am checking with my demo about the woodgrain stamp. Thanks everyone for your suggestions/help SCS people are the BEST!

Hardwood is a wonderful stamp, you couldn't go wrong with it.
But I also have IO's Woodgrain stamp , can't go wrong with that either.
The direct-to-paper method of creating wood in the tutorial in post #9, combined with any of the woodgrain stamps, looks fab. And so long as you have two or three different inks in the same colour family, you can make almost any colour you want.

I love this stamp (called Hardwood)!! I gave up buying wood grain paper that was rarely the right color. Now I can make as many cards as I want without running out of paper! Good investment!
