Meet Kittie Caracciolo, member of the Brass and Bliss Craft Co Design Team for 2024!

Kittie Caracciolo is a Rubbernecker Associate Designer, who constantly inspires our die-cut products; she even has her own line of dies within the Brass & Bliss Shop. After a four decade career in Medical Administration, Kittie is now enjoying being home with her husband and her two aging cats and two young ACTIVE dogs. She loves having lots of time to spend playing in her craft room and sharing her creations with you. Fun Fact: her mother was a florist and she learned so much about floral design from her. When dies and die cutting machines were introduced, Kittie completely fell in love with using her floral design skills to create dimensional floral designs as well as dimensional scenes. WOW! That’s is such a beautiful way to honor her mama!  Kittie has served on many design teams over the years and is thrilled to now work exclusively with Rubbernecker. Kittie says “They make me feel like part of the family.” We love you, Kittie!

Julie Warner is an Associate Designer who creates many of our stunning projects and is actually the artist behind the coloring of our product artwork for packaging. Julie is a Texan now living in northern Georgia and says she HAS to always in creative mode with art, music, decoupage, knitting or any other fun creative activity. Julie started stamping “way back in high school art class” where she carved her own stamps out of erasers and linoleum blocks! She started her own rubber stamp collection before anyone really knew what to do with them and rest is history! Julie says the only downside to her ever growing collection of creative goodies is that she wishes the space to store everything would expand along with the supplies themselves!

Meet Preeti Chandran, member of the Brass and Bliss Craft Co Design Team for 2024!

Meet Preeti Chandran, our amazing Video Content Creator, who brings our products to life with her amazing video tutorials.  Preeti makes her home in North Carolina with her family. Thirteen years ago she was full steam into her practice as a physician when her son was diagnosed with Autism and ADHD. Preeti made the decision to leave her career and commit full time to raising her boy. Now that he’s become so independent Preeti has found that she’s got plenty of time on her hands and after stumbling over the art of card making, she was thrilled to dive into something that allowed her to be creative and share her cards with friends and family. She took the leap to sharing with the rest of the world after being persuaded by her daughters, and we are so thankful she did. Preeti loves to hand out her creations to the drive through baristas, delighted cashiers, teachers and even strangers who Preeti believes needs some cheer. Her guiding words are “Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do!” and she does this through spreading as much joy, kindness and unconditional love she can. Join us in welcoming Preeti back to the team for 2024!


Meet Dominique Bailey, member of the Brass and Bliss Craft Co Design Team for 2024!

Check out Dominique Bailey, our fabulous new designer. Dominique is a Pittsburgh native who has been crafting in various forms since childhood. When she was a teenager she received a scrapbooking kit as a birthday gift. However, due to the popularity of digital cameras, she wasn’t printing pictures as often to create a scrapbook page. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for her to realize that you could use the same materials from scrapbooking for card making. The rest was history. Dominique really enjoys crafting with die cuts, stencils, and floral images. Everyday she is grateful to be apart of this community where she can not only receive inspiration, but also provide inspiration to others. She is also wife and a mom to a beautiful five year old daughter (her best and cutest creation to date). Join in in welcoming her to the team!
