The type or namespace name could not be found (New to XAML)

So I'm trying to work a very simple dice app on a XAML document using Visual Studio 2012, but I can't figure out what to do with the error. I've tried adding using bitmapimage; but it still won't work.

Here are the errors I'm getting:

Error   1   Undefined namespace. The 'using' URI refers to a namespace 'DiceRoll' that could not be found.
Error   2   The type or namespace name 'BitmapImage' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

        private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            Random num = new Random();
            int Number = num.Next(1, 7);
            BitmapImage Img = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"DiceFaces\" + Number.ToString() + ".bmp", UriKind.Relative));

            textBlock1.Text = Number.ToString() + " Number";
            image1.Source = Img;

using System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage;

Instead of

using BitmapImage;

An easier way is to let Visual Studio do it for you : Right click on BitmapImage in your code -> resolve, and select the right namespace (there is generaly only one)

For the xaml, let Visual studio do it for you too, or :
