Removing latex paint from woodwork

I recently painted and unfortunately some paint bled through the painters tape and is now all over my stained woodwork. Is there anyway to remove latex paint from woodwork without harming the wood? I tried to scrap the paint away but no luck.

Have you tried a rag and warm water? It takes elbow grease but usually works. Maybe useing a putty knife with the wet rag on it. Another alternative is to go to a paint store and get a small container of Goof-Off, test on a hidden area and let dry to make sure it doesn't harm the surface, it shouldn't, it will take off the latex.
