    No. Her stuff will remain on her device.

    The stuff that she has on her iPhone 4S will not be affected since you've created a new account for you to be used with your iPhone 5C and your iPad.

    If you created a new account for you to use with your new 5c and iPad 2 you had two options:
    -Start fresh (from zero, no apps or anything) or
    - Restore your 5c from a 4s back up so it'd move the info you had in your 4s to your new 5c.

    BUT keep in mind, that whatever you purchased with the old account (the one you gave to your daughter) will stay there, what I mean is that if you want to (re)download apps purchased with the old account, you'd had to keep switching back and forth, because you can't move your purchases to the new account (but can download with the other account to your 5c with no problem).

    You go to itunes store and change the name and personal info if you want, with your daughter's and as for whatever she has in your old 4s, nothing will be affected, everything will stay as you left it.
