My 3 year old daughter just had all four of her front teeth capped 2 days ago.  There is some blood around the gums on a couple of her teeth.  I notice it most after she brushers her teeth or has something to drink.  I have wiped dried blood off of her lip several times today.  When I look at her gums it looks like it is drying up.   Did anybody else have this experience?

My daughter just got a molar capped last week, they said to expect the gums around the cap to bleed for a few days afterwards.

yes. I was told to expect some soreness and bleeding from new crowns, in our case. She instructed my son to rinse with warm salt water 3-4 times a day for the first 2 days after the procedure. I know he did the first day, but can't say if he did the second.
