Looking for Hammered Cardstock
 
In a recent post on her wonderful blog, Claire Brennan from Waltzingmouse showed an absolutely gorgeous card that used paper she referred to as "hammered cream card(stock) from Papermill UK."

Has anyone here on SCS bought any of this luscious-looking cardstock from a US supplier? I did see that it can be purchased from Papermill UK on e-bay, but I'd rather avoid having paper sent from abroad and be more likely to get dinged and bashed.

Thanks for any info you might have!

It looks a bit like watercolor paper. You could always mist heavy cardstock with water and then hammer it yourself.

not to sound weird or anything, but if the effect is a hammered look, a few dings might not hurt it so bad......you could call it distressed, or shabby chic. And IMHO, I would much ratherr buy US.....our companies need the money more than overseas.

I appreciate these suggestions, but I'm more inclined to see if there's some available to buy. I'm not too adept with the DIY approach -- except for cards!

doing a search for papermill, I came up with this results:

You could do a further search for the product name, also

Thanks Carolyn, I had seen this in my initial search. They don't offer a cream color, which is what I would prefer, but if I can't find anything else, I may give them a try.

I've purchased it from the UK a while back- and as hard as I tried - I was unable to find in North America. It is pretty heavy stuff - mine arrived a - okay.

I might suggest purchasing in the folded cardstock size that you want. It is so thick that I've never been able to create a crease in my hammered cardstock without crushing up the crease. It's beautiful card stock though -no doubt about it!

IRL it's much different than watercolour paper. Much thicker and lighter - kind of air filled - if that makes sense!:wink:
