Not really. Mainly because you can't stamp directly on it very well. I have some I got in a pack and didn't realize it was textured. I'm using it up for layers. If I want texture, I generally use one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders.

Yup! I love it for backgrounds, Cuttlebug folders and dies, antiqued edges. BUT it doesn't leave a clean image ( if that is what you need) for stamping.

I just recently picked up a pack of textured cardstock from The Paper Studio. I have been inspired by Roxie (Rox71) who uses it so beautifully in her cards.

I just pulled it out the other day and used some -- I like that it adds interest so easily in the layers. It is quite thin and I'd never use it for a base, but it's a wonderful option for layers!! Plus, I really like the colors choices in the pad I purchased.

Here's the card I made with it:

I love it, too, but not for stamped images. I use it whenever I can.

Check out Biggan's gallery, and you'll see why I love textured cardstock: Splitcoaststampers Member Galleries - Biggan - Handmade Cards & Crafts

I used textured cardstock for layering when I want a lil extra something, but I agree it is not good for stamping. I also like to use it if I want the distressed look it sands nicely.

LOL, I was going to say check out Biggan's gallery. I love it for layering and punching, and often for a base layer, but don't often stamp on it - and then I look at some of Birgit's cards and wonder why on earth I don't.
