sorry at the time I have no time to search Quran extensively to answer you but these are among the words used as for creator, none of them being exactly the same: خالق، بارئ، فاطر and the words originated in them like خلاق. For creation: خلق، برئ، فطر. For creatures: مخلوق. Hope others will find the other words as well. –  owari Dec 13 '12 at 7:04
