Don't know if you do this or not, but I have absolutely no problem in unmounting and cutting up my $1 stamps to suit my purposes. Since I like my stamps unmounted in CD cases, it works well. And those Mike's $1 stamps have excellent cling to them (See several posts down).
For this card I cut away the "Take it Easy" from the flip-flop. I like the flip-flop, like the "Take it Easy" but also know I want to be able to use them independently.
Same thing with the bird stamp. What a cute bird! And I've wanted that sentiment for a long time -- but not always next to each other. Oh, I know I could ink up just part of the stamp, but I'm an ink pad kind of girl and for $1 I can afford to cut these stamps up.
I immediately cut the "Party" out of the harlequin pattern. I know I'll have no use for that. But, boy, do I love that harlequin pattern. Excellent size for ATC's.
Like the pregnant woman, but really don't like the sentiment "She's Expecting." So I cut that off. I know I'll get much more use out of it as a congratulations card. And now she fits perfectly in the oval frame stamp I have.
