Hi Mandi!!!  (Can you see me jumping up and down waving at you?????   ;) )

Yes, that makes sense, I've done that a few times - cut flourishes apart from words when I want just words.

Back at you.

Ironically, since I posted this I've cut more stamps than I ever have! (Of course, I also just bought a bunch of stamps :$ and almost doubled my collection).

I would cut them because it just opens them up to be more versatile.

I cut the alphabet stamps out, so much easier to stamp with them. But I don´t know if they scream, more like whispering; ...stamp cutter...

Absolutely! I cut them whenever it makes practical sense to me. I often like to stack a "Happy Birthday" sentiment and rather than go through the trouble of masking I'll just cut them apart. I can't remember if I've ever cut up images, but I'll be sure to give it a try soon!

I cut mine. I have never had a problem getting them to fit back together when I wanted the full image.

I've cut sayings, either to shorten and stack or to piece/add to other sayings. But talk about a way to get more sayings without investing!  I have fit them together again without too much of a problem--speaks the non-perfectionist. It is much cleaner than masking; no matter how careful, I almost always get an unwanted line or partial image--speaks the non-perfectionist. It is a great way to mix up fonts too.

I've cut both clear and rubber stamps, as well as masked both.  Depends on the project and the reason!

I admit I'm a cutter.  I was a SU! demo years ago.  I noticed they had a large quantity of small images with words attached.  I found if I cut the words away and mounted them on the side of the block I used both images and words more.  Masking just doesn't always work and can get messy.  Ever since that early experience  I find that if I might use it more I will cut it down. I have also looked at old  stamps that I'm not using.  Would I use them more if I cut them down? does cutting them down increase the possibilities?  Will I use them more?  If the answer is yes or even maybe I say cut!

I cut my stamps apart all the time. With clear sets it's so easy to piece them back together if I want to use them together again, but time and time again I find that I want to use a word, and not necessarily an entire phase.
