I DID bake them though, so that should have heat set the ink, right?
I use baby wipes to clean my stamps. It takes SU ink off completely and I use stazon cleaner too for the stazon ink. I bet it is the baby wipes that is making your colors run and not letting your ink set. Make sure your rubber is clean and rinsed and dry before inking it so you don't get any in your ink pads. Only clean your tiles with water and let them dry completely and then stamp them. Let me know if this works because I haven't had any problems.
