There are lots out there but my favorite color cardstock is ac (American Crafts). It is solid core, meaning when you cut, the color is all the way through the paper and you don't get that tacky looking white core with your cuts. (the white core is not so bad if you do inking or you have no layers, but when you start puting layers together, it can sometimes make your finished image look tacky. I only have hobby lobby close to me and that is 35 miles away, but I have good success with most of their paper stacks and will buy them when they are 50% off. I know there are several brand names they carry. I order my AC papers online but don't remember the vender right off. Just do search for ac or american crafts cardstock. The one paper(s) that I would strongly NOT recommend is the individual sheet card stock and printed papers from Hobby Lobby. It seems to have a high fiber content and will rip to pieces and make you want to pull your hair out - at least that has been my experience.

I personally like the ColorBok that you get at Wal-Mart! I HATE the Recollection brand from Michael's!
