Default Difference in cardstock?

I'm hoping one of you MFT gurus can help me out here!

I bought a few colors of MFT cardstock a while back to try out and am loving them so far. I'm working on switching mine over from another shall-not-be-named-company to all MFT!

But I'm wondering what the difference is between Smooth White and Sweet Tooth? I see the weight is slightly different but are the colors different as well?

Thanks so much!

Hi Tracy!

The Smooth White is heavier than Sweet Tooth, but the main difference is that it doesn't have as much *tooth*, meaning it is smoother and is PERFECT for solid stamping styles.

I hope that clarifies!

Awesome, thanks so much!

Which would be best for coloring with copics or spectrum noirs?

I really prefer the Copic Xpress It Blending paper for coloring. We've got more en route, and it should arrive before the release.

Thanks Kim! I was thinking more along the lines of a one-layer card. I love the Xpress for images, but sometimes I like to make one-layer cards, stamp, and color. Wasn't sure how that would work with either of these?

I don't know that either would be the best choice for one layer cards. I tested the Smooth White and it bled a little (but doesn't bleed to the backside very much, if at all). The Sweet Tooth is a little thinner and will bleed through. You might be able to get Smooth White to work if you have a light hand when coloring. I don't, so I didn't have the best luck, but I adore it for solid stamping with colored inks.
