I then fixated on the Green category and started joining words that hinted towards teeth. It took me two minutes to remember that Crown is also a term, but I ended up getting it.
The Blue category itself was moderately difficult to solve. While I was confusing it with terms used to take a leave, the Rubber Stamp logic came pretty close.
