Default Cardstock!

I use to be a su demo and now have been out of the loop for a few years due to health....I would really like to know what everyone is using for cardstock...I need some red!....lol....I searched for su demo's in my area and there are none closer than 2 hours..which is fine but I thought I would ask what else is around ... I remember GinaK????....and there were some others?..thanks!

For colored card stock, I prefer Stampin' Up!

For white, I like the Recollections 110lb. Cardstock from Michaels or Georgia-Pacific White Cardstock Paper 110lb. from Walmart.

I think that SU has great card stock. Also My Favourite Things as well as Paper Trey carry great quality card stock.

I think SU's Real Red and Cherry Cobbler are still two of the prettiest reds available to use at Christmas.
My next fav as far as color selection just from looking online would be Gina K. She has a great selection of reds. Her card stock is heavier weight than SU. I have not purchased a red from her specifically; but a few years ago I purchased an Autumn release kit that came with a few different solid colors and all were heavy, "base weight" card stock.
Papertrey Ink has a color called Pure Poppy but that is it for what I would consider a Christmas red.
If you don't want to wait for shipping, and have a store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby near you I think Bazzill makes a very pretty red for Christmas. The weight is lighter than SU's colored card stock if that matters to you.

I just get mine at Walmart, because that is all we have around here. I just bought a pack of Neenah cardstock in pastels; it was in the office section.

I used Real Red from SU and Crumb Cake for my Christmas cards this year and I love it. I DO have a local demo, but I always order from her SU site online because I live out in the country a ways. I never go to her events because they don't work with my schedule. I started out by ordering the color collections, (Regals, Neutrals, Subtles, etc) to see them in real life and am now in process of buying packs of the individual colors that I like most and know I'll use. Even the colors that I'm not excited about, I know I'll use at some point for something. It works out well for me because SU is great about getting things to me quickly. With In Colors, I usually get the collection with the ink pads and markers (and reinkers if I like a color I think I'll use a lot).

Debi, if you found a SU demo a few hours away, could your order be shipped directly to you? I am not a demo so perhaps that is a silly question? or become a demo again maybe

I buy cardstock from both SU and Gina K. They're both great, in my opinion.

You can order from SU and have it shipped directly to you. I love that as I have a customer who lives in WI and I'm in PA. Makes life easier for her to order and pay online.

I LOVE Cherry Cobbler - definitely my FAVORITE red. I even painted my front door that color (or as close as possible!)

I consider SU an online company....with very fast shipping!
I found my demo through Ebay, buying a discontinued catalog. She is in Michigan and I'm in Oklahoma, so we have never met. She offered 30% discounts often, then when SU changed demo policies, she had to change to 25% off, several times a year for orders over $75.
You have to pay for shipping whether you pick up from demo, or have shipped direct from SU. If you go to SU website you can probably locate a demo close to you.

these stores also carry cardstock if you are willing to shop online:

Marco's Paper -- The Best Source for Paper, Envelopes, Cardstock & Accessories Since 1971

Neenah Paper | Letterpress, Colored, and Textured Paper Company (although they do not have much in red)

I love textured coloured paper, so I always go to Amazon and look for canvas-textured red Bazzill. Right now I have Bazzill's canvas-texture Maraschino for my reds.

While I really like SU's Real Red, Gina K's Cherry Red is very close in color. All of her paper is top notch.

SU here too! That's all I use for CS. I have two demos that have classes I go to. I'm going to start a third demos classes! I don't go to them each month. Wish I could share some demos with you. I'm in a rural area too....but I guess not overly rural or maybe rural enough that there isn't anything else to do but make cards! Hahahaha~
