You mean like the "Text Ellipse" and "Text Rectangle"? Look at  
NCEllipseMorph, you basically just need to change the drawOn: method.

OTOH you can do this without coding, just take a polygon to make the  
diamond shape and embed the text in it. For convenience, adjust the  
layout to keep the text centered, and your done.
