So my hubby was so good to me and got me the Cameo for Christmas. (He's a pretty amazing guy!) Now I'm wondering if what recommendations you seasoned users have for cardstock. I've used Bazzill a couple times and feel like it doesn't cut the best (my blade is set to 5 and I double cut). I did cut some Echo Park PP yesterday and it was super clean and beautiful but the cardstock I cut - not so much! Any suggestions on which cardstock is best?

it should have enough cutting pressure to cut ANY cardstock. Kerry Bradford uses mostly American Crafts cardstock. I use Bazzill in my regular Silhouette all the time and it cuts fine.

I find the Cameo blade doesn't like fibrous card. The bits get stuck inside the holder and its difficult to remove. Bazzil seems to cut well.

I have the Silhouette SD and I think it has less pressure? Anyway, I use Bazzill and Stampin' Up card stock in it.

I use #6 for Bazzil single cut (Recommended by Sil. customer service) and #3 for the Joann's packaged thinner non textured cardstock single cut. Works perfectly!

I use American Crafts after reading that's what Nichol Magouirk and Kerri Bradford use/recommend. I have had absolutely no troubles cutting it, and everything comes out perfectly clean.

I've never used American Crafts, is it thinner than Bazzill? Where do you buy it?

I use ac cs and wrmk cs. If my blade is getting to the dull side I usually click double cut and have no issues.

I think it is thinner than Bazzill, but not a lot I don't think. It does have a nice texture to it.

The only place I've been able to find it is A's or online. And, I think the last time I was in A's they told me they weren't going to be carrying it anymore so I stocked up. I know you can buy some here at 2Peas, but J's online also carries it.

Any recommendations for DCWV? I've cut it at 2 w/slower speed and it only seemed to go halfway through the card stock.

Should I up it to a 3 or 4?
