For occasional use, you can mask the unwanted part with a couple of bits of sellotape, ink the stamp and then remove the tape before stamping. I do this quite often too, when I don't want to cut the stamp. If it's a sentiment maybe one piece of tape is enough, but if it's something with curved lines I find it easier to use several little bits. And after experimenting, it's definitely better to mask before inking, rather than ink first and then masking the unwanted part.
